Revival of Faith
I was a target due to colour of flesh. I was a target due to gender. I had no choice but to run, run through a dim alley where I came across this work of art. Behind my apartment in Brantford, Ontario, was this illustration of Bob Marley. A man who truly stood for the essence of peace in the face of all adversity. A firm believer in the unity of all beings through the harmony of music. My idol. At that very moment, I felt the mask of terror lift from my soul. I felt protected. I felt at home. I felt at peace.
