Brad was honored to be invited to a community civic meeting...
Helping to educate the poor before elections, informing them of their rights, and hearing their voices...
He sat in the back.
The community made space for him - "Welcome, Baba Sam".
You are one of us.
He happened to sit next to a mama we know.
But the moment that stood out...
Was when the register was passed around.
With a humble look, a Mama passed Brad the pen.
My heart aches for this Mama - and so many others who don't know how to write their own name.
