Saraya Hamidi

Over the summer, Ms. Hamidi learned of the unjust death of Elijah McClain, a 23-year old, unarmed Black man, from Aurora, Colorado. In response to his death, she channeled her anger into creating the Instagram page, @justiceforElijahMcClain, in hopes of bringing justice to Elijah and his family. Ms. Hamidi began actively posting and spreading awareness of this case on social media and launched a digital petition calling for the officers involved in Elijah’s death to be held accountable for their actions. In just a few short months, the account has grown to 200,000 followers; and the petition has over 5.6 million signatures.

In these tumultuous times, I hope that we can all watch today's inauguration, and recommit ourselves to all of America's promises for the next four years and beyond. For those of us who are American citizens, we will all have a new president. Let us root for ourselves and the success of our new president together. May he succeed so that we may all succeed. And, most importantly, may we secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity - those future generations who deserve the promises of America just as much as we do.
