On Wednesday, during a protest in Austin, Texas following the election victory of now President-elect Donald Trump, a crowd of activists was moved to tears by a small little girl who delivered a powerful message heard around the world.
This tiny figure stood on the steps of the Texas state capital and led the crowd in chanting every word she spoke.
“I am a female.
I am mixed race.
I am a child!
And I cannot vote.
But that will not stop me.
From getting heard.
Love is love.
And love trumps hate.”
Despite all of the Trump inspired hateful words and actions that his supporters spew upon this great nation, there will always be more Americans like this little girl who are destined to stake their claim on America’s future.
Because hate can not stop progress.
