Inspired by the murder of George Floyd, I created this piece to remind everyone that "All Lives Matter".
It may not be to the same degree but I've also known injustice in my life...
I have experienced what it's like to be denied of human rights. To suppress my feelings and actions because the person in authority deemed my views inappropriate.
I am talking about that time I was still in the closet and I am prohibited to love someone because we happen to have the same sex.
The situation crushed my freedom and the more I restrained the attraction I had, the more it felt like I was dying inside.
Had I not known courage, the voice that's speaking to you now, the hands that are painting these colorful illustrations and the woman it embodies would have been gone forever.
And it's saddening that hate crimes are still rising despite our efforts to educate the entire population of the world. Abuse of status is very much alive but let's not allow our hopes to get killed.
May we all learn to recognize and respect everyone's potential regardless of their race, ethnicity, ancestry, religion, sexual orientation, disability, gender, and gender identity.
Live for that day that we become all equal in every sense of the word.
