You were worthy the day they put you on a boat and shipped you away from the life you knew. You were worthy when they built this country on your back and made you feel like an alien in it. You were worthy when they beat you, raped you, hung you and berated you. You were born worthy and will remain this way…even if they cannot see your worth.
I shouldn’t have to live in a country where I worry about my husband and brothers walking, driving, speaking, breathing.
