7 score and seventeen years ago, people gathered to hear President Lincoln’s famous Gettysburg speech.
A speech where he said, that all men are created equal, and ended slavery with the emancipation statement. A speech that changes the human perception. A speech, that was supposed to be the beginning of a new era.
A lot has happened in the world in the past decades. In 1920, women got suffrage in The United States. In 1969, the first man landed on the moon, and in 2009, USA got their first colored president.
Our nation is constantly devolving, our technology is getting more advanced. We have found cures for countless illnesses.
How can our view of humanity still be so outdated?
How can there still be police brutality in the states?
How can there still be so much hate based on race?
I do not understand that. I do not want to understand that. I want changes. And I want changes now.
