I walked in honor of Eric Garner, the innocent bystander and family man who was choked to death by police in broad daylight last summer in Staten Island. The #ICantBreathe hashtag that was circulating widely in relation to protests during the latter half of 2014 was in memory of him, since those were his last words.
I feel greatly loved and appreciated. Lots of cards, well wishes, "Follow your dreams"s , "Keep God first"s, "I love you"s and "We're so proud of you"s came my way today. I hope to continue to make everybody proud. Praise be to God for each and every one of you.
