    I am sorry that I couldn’t be there but I am proud of my community. While the march may have been silent- we can never silence our voices as we demand that we can walk the streets of the District of Columbia proudly and safely as god made us. Our politicians and our schools must redouble their efforts at educating people about the strength of diversity and the necessity to respect each others differences. We must continue to support each other and stand strong together to demand swift and appropriate punishment for those who would perpertrate such heinous crimes.
