health we are water

I stand with Standing Rock, because we, like you, have had our babies stolen from our arms and our language and history stolen from our mouths. We, like you, have seen our culture turned into costume and our art turned into advertising.

We have all have seen our blood drench this soil in the name of white supremacy, our infant mortality rates climb in a system that aims to keep us in poverty and ill health. We, like you, have seen our men and women die in the streets at the hands of murderous cops. We see your water threatened today by the same carelessness and corruption that has ruined our water and threatened our health in Flint. And we see people look at you today and say, like they say to us: that the poverty and the incarceration and the illness and the crime – it’s all your fault.

But we also see you fighting every day for your land and your history and your families and your future, just like we fight for ours. And as we march demanding that this white supremacist nation finally recognize that Black Lives Matter, you use your bodies as shields, demanding that your right for clean drinking water and for the autonomy of your land be respected.

I dont really know if we’re in control. That were just making the best of what comes and thats it. Constantly trying to pick between two options, Like your two paintings in the waiting room or coke and pepsi, Mcdonalds or burger king, Hundi or Honda. Its all part of the same blur huh. Just out of focus, Its the illusion of chioce. Half of us cant pick our own table, Gas, Furniture, electric the water we drink, our health insurance.. even if we did would it matter. If our only choices were bluecross or blueshield, what the fuck is the difference? In fact arent they the same? Nah man are chioces are prepaid for us.

How do we know if we’re in control? That we’re not just making the best of what comes at us, and that’s it. Trying to constantly pick between two options. Like your two paintings in the waiting room.Or Coke and Pepsi. McDonald’s or Burger King? Hyundai or Honda? Hmm.It’s all part of the same blur, right? Just out of focus enough. It’s the illusion of choice. Half of us can’t even pick our own our cable, gas, electric. The water we drink, our health insurance. Even if we did, would it matter? You know, if our only option is Blue Cross or Blue Shield, what the fuck is the difference? In fact, aren’t they the same? No, man our choices are prepaid for us, long time ago.

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, ‘Verily, the first thing a servant will be asked about on the Day of Resurrection will be his blessings. It will be said to him: Did We not give you health in your body and cool water to drink?’
