On the morning of Monday, June 5th, Veronica Fitzhugh shared these words with her supporters, prior to her first court hearing.
“You may not always understand me.
You may feel what I do is hateful.
You may only hear my yelling and cursing.
But, I hear a sweeter symphony of other oppressed voices awakening us to wary action in defense of those condemned to the margins and against those who create and maintain those cruel, lonely spaces.
I ask you to move to understanding, act with love, and listen to these people… and move them out of the margins and into the sacred spaces of your hearts.
