OATH of ANGER TO HOPE in honor of all the Trayvon Martins of the world

In honor of Trayvon Martin, Take the OATH of ANGER TO HOPE. Print it out, share it, repost. Let us not let the death of Trayvon Martin and all the Trayvon Martins of the world be in vain. Let us use the passion from this horrific MURDER to teach our young people to STOP THE VIOLENCE amongst themselves. Our young people are inflicting violence upon each other because they are angry. And, those that hate us and want to kill our children use this violence upon each other as an excuse to consider our children NOT WORTHY OF LIVING. Take the OATH.

Sincerely,

THE OATH READS: In HONOR of UNJUSTLY slain TRAYVON MARTIN and all unjustly slain young people like him. In RESPECTS to the pain endured by TRAYVON MARTINS parents and the pain endured by all parents of an unjustly slain child, I __________________________ take this oath.

This OATH initiated by AFRICAN AMERICAN peoples as a plea to all peoples be you BLACK, WHITE, ASIAN, HISPANIC, LATINO just as long as you are human. We ask that you take this OATH to vow that you will not use your ANGER and HATRED to prey upon another human begin for the purpose of harming with violence, malipulating and harassing them by bullying them or making degrading comments or racial slurs. As doing so will me the same as the one who MURDERED Trayvon Martin and all the those murdered like him.

As a BLACKMAN, I vow that I will not allow my anger to control me and use it as an excuse because of the absence of my father and the lone struggle of my mother. BUT, INSTEAD, I WILL USE MY ANGER AS A POWER TO RELEASE THE GOD GIVEN GENIS IN ME TO SEE THAT THIS CHALLENGE MAKES ME INTO A Self Made Man. As misdirected anger will only make me the same as the one who MURDERED Trayon Martin and all those murdered like Trayvon Martin.

As a BLACKWOMAN, I take this oath and vow to no longer use my anger as an excuse to raise my children in anger or direct anger toward their father because of his level of providing. BUT WILL USE MY ANGER AS THE MOTIVATING POWER TO OVERCOME MY CHALLANGES AND AS THE POWER I NEED TO SUCCEED. AND to raise my children to realize that, DESPITE ALL, that they are the beautiful combination of the best that is in the both of us (the best of their mom and the best of their dad). I vow not to raise my child in anger. As misdirected anger will only make them the same as the one who MURDERED Trayon Martin and all those murdered like Trayvon Martin.

INSTEAD, WE THE BLACK FAMILY collectively will take all of our OPPRESSION and life challenges stemming from that oppression and CREATE A RAY OF HOPE. We will sieze this moment when Trayvon Martins murder moves us to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. We will use the spirit and passion from this unfortunate occurance to take a LEADERSHIP position in our communities. Thus, changing how the world sees us as a people. So, that it will no longer be a matter of irrelevance to hunt one of us down and MURDER us.

We collectively take this oath to lead, guide and invite all races in becoming more HUMANE toward each other. WE WILL NOT LET this MURDER go in vain. Trayvon Martin and all like him are sacrificial lambs and no longer will we let that sacrifice be in vain. We the BLACK FAMILY/ THE BLACK YOUTH invite you the world into our family.

LET'S share in this one HUMANE gesture to VOW to not let anger make us like tht which MURDERED the TRAYVON MARTINS of our society. We owe it to every soldier fighting to assure them that they can come home to a country where they can raise their teenager without that teenager being preyed upon and MURDERED for 'walking to buy candy while BLACK'.
