As long as God keeps giving us breath in our bodies and the ability to use our voices, we will not stop until justice is had for my brother Rodney. We will not falter. We will not fall to the wayside. We are here until the end. If anyone hasn’t figured that out in these last 22 years, then they probably need to open their eyes a little bit wider.
I will tell you this, though. We are tired. We stress. That’s part of why this blog post is being published 10 days after the event. 22 years is a really long time.
But don’t get me wrong- we always keep the Faith and stay strong. And that’s not easy in this world. With the help, love, and support of people like you who showed up and showed out on March 9 (and especially those of you who have been rocking with us from the beginning of this fight), that helps us see a brighter future- a brighter tomorrow. Not just for Rodney, but for humanity. For justice. For right. I’m proud to say that I consider you all family because family sticks together. Family stands up for one another. Family looks out for one another, especially in times of great need. Yall have been standing with our family and continue to stand with us in our time of great need. And that means more than any words I can put together. I appreciate you all from the bottom of my heart!
My family also thanks Scott Cobb, President of the Texas Moratorium Network; Delia Perez-Meyer, sister of Louis Castro Perez (who is another wrongfully convicted man on Texas death row ) and our sister in the struggle; and Lily Hughes of the Free Rodney Reed Campaign for speaking at the event. We appreciate you for lifting your voices on our behalf and on behalf of the other people who have been wronged by this unjust criminal justice system. We appreciate your efforts and all of the important work that each of you do.
So I say to you family, let’s continue fighting for right and letting these people who are obstructing justice know we are not asleep at the wheel! Free Rodney Reed!
