Today she would be celebrating her 27th birthday. She should be at home with family and friends celebrating another year of life, but she can’t. Who is she? Breonna Taylor.
She was an emergency room tech who had big dreams according to her mother. She was essential. She had so much time to do everything she set her mind to until cops came into her home for a “no-knock” warrant entry for drugs that were never found and a person who was already in custody when they got to her home (we all know he ain’t live there, but go off LMPD 😒). This entry ended in 20 shots being fired and 8 of them killing Breonna while she was in the bed. At this rate, we can’t even be safe in our homes. Am I still pissed? Of course, I am. BUT I’m glad to see steps being taken to get George Floyd’s killers charged along with Auhmad Aubrey’s killers. I want the same thing for her killers. They need to be locked up and charged for murder.
Today we may be sad, but I know that for me and my house we will celebrate her life because it was cut too short. If you want to celebrate her here are a few links to donate and sign petitions in her honor. It only takes 2 mins tops!
These aren’t even close to the number of links that are out there, so type her name and sign every petition you can. It may not seem like you’re doing much, but trust me you are. Her family and friends will appreciate it. You are truly making a difference.
I will say your name. We will say your name. You will get your justice, love.
Peaceful protests and all! The world will know your name and story. RIP beautiful.
What will you do?
Be safe, and I’ll see you in the next one
Xoxo, Jonice 💕
