Do you know what freedom means?

Dope.

 

By CAROLINA SANCHEZ, Sports Editor

 

“The caged bird sings   

with a fearful trill   

of things unknown   

but longed for still   

and his tune is heard   

on the distant hill   

for the caged bird   

sings of freedom.”

-Maya Angelou

 

I know why the player kneels

They kneel for freedom

 

I know why the person marches

They march for freedom

 

I know why the activists speak

They speak for freedom

 

I don’t know why the KKK marches

Do they march for freedom?

 

I don’t know why the president tweets

Does he tweet for freedom?

 

I know why I read

I read for freedom

 

I know why I speak up

I speak up for freedom

I know that my parents have immigrated

They immigrate for freedom

 

I know that everyone is not free

So we search for freedom.
