our sister’s tattoo/revolutionary love

May 2, 2010 § 2 Comments

dear beautiful people, thank you for all of your contributions! my internet has been a bit wonky lately, but i am amazed and excited to announce that we have raised 105 dollars as of today! yay! wow! only 145 dollars left to reach our goal. so please give as much or as little as you can. and share this story of revolutionary love in the face of death with others. remember that we build our own community one day at a time…

i love aaminah and eric’s story. it is a story that we dont often get to hear. a story of discovering who you are piece by piece and learning to reclaim your heritage in the face of a world that tells you to ignore who and where you come from.
when aaminah said she wanted to get a tattoo to memoralize eric, i knew that i wanted to help her get this tattoo. but she can’t afford it on her own. and i can’t afford it on my own. and so i am asking all of you to donate what you can for this ink and flesh memorial.
sometimes, life is really complicated. death is complicated. but a tattoo close to aaminah’s heart of her fallen companero is really simple.

    Hey, i just want to send a huge THANK YOU out to Mai’a for putting together and tracking the fundraiser for me, as well as promoting it everywhere. And of course, another huge THANK YOU to those of you who have contributed and/or promoted and/or shared it with others and/or sent me thoughtful personal messages and/or prayed on me & my family’s behalf or even just thought of us. Love to you all!
