RIP Tamir Rice

By Paul | December 29, 2015

Copyright Belt Magazine; Author RA Washington
“Close your eyes and picture Tamir. There are hundreds of pictures of him floating through cyberspace, you could not go a day for a year where you didn’t see that boy’s sweet, sweet face. Those chubby kid cheeks, brown sugar plums, turned up in a smile so bright that it could light up a room. Children should get to be kids. Children are supposed to be safe in our parks, we are supposed to protect them. Do you see him? Now dry the last of your tears, your disbelief, for as Mr. James Baldwin said fifty-plus years ago — “it’s easier to cry than it is to be change.””
