They spoke so I could
In voices loud and clear
They said we want to be free
for we hold everything you hold dear

They protested so that I could
Saying that we helped build this land
We deserve to be treated like human beings
and we are going to take a stand

They tried and tried again, so that I could
Arrested and beaten, they never gave up the fight
We may have our scrapes and scars
But our eyes can still see the light

They died so that I could...
Live
And I'll be *****
if I don't at least give
half of a ****
to remember all that they did
So that I could...

Vote!!!

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
