The Fire Within
She looked at the crowd and was frightened but knew she had to speak up against the violence and destruction all around her, she had to find the courage to fight them, not in their way but her way. There was a fire in her for love and equality that she could not deny and she knew when she spoke out against the hate and bigotry she was witnessing there would be repercussions, but she stood her ground and had her say. She had no choice but to take the flame and light the fire in others to spread the message of love and equality for everyone everywhere.
