Celebrating Venida Browder
The Browder family
I was shocked to hear of your passing earlier this week. Many of us are still grieving, but I am thankful that you and Kalief have been reunited again. It breaks my heart to know that you have had to endure so much pain while you were with us. No one should feel the suffering that you and your son have felt.
Your lost lives are an absolute injustice. But we are all inspired by your legacy. Your son has taught me the most important lesson I will ever learn while I am breathing. Kalief has shown me that I must live in my truth no matter the circumstances I might find myself in. He lived that truth in way that makes our hearts burst with pride.
No human being should face that test via the prison industrial complex. Kalief did. Now I can only pray that his example will encourage us to continue fighting until the horrors of our criminal justice system are eradicated.
In remembrance of Saint Kalief
Thank you for your courage. Thank you for your wisdom.
Thank you for living in your truth.
I am proud to know the both of you.
God bless you. Eternally.
