“In Republic City’s war on crime, the worst criminal offenders are pursued by the detectives of Republic City Police Force. Chief Beifong; who found something new to be bitter about and Detective Mako; who definitely does not cry in the shower. These are their stories.”

I feel like people are missing something really key that happened in the 2016 Tonys performance.
Lin changed one word. But that’s all it took to change the meaning of the performance and the Tonys.
“Weapon with my hands.”
They didn’t just take out the muskets to show solidarity, Lin is trying to teach us that what we do, say and write will change perspective for generations to come. He’s showing us how we don’t need a gun or violence to fight for what we believe in. Like Alexander, we have our hands. Our writing. Our words are immortalised when we write, no matter who takes us away. The massacre in Orlando has devastated our country, but why stay silent? Why give them what they want and silence ourselves? We need to make something that is immortalised. Teach generations that come that you can take away our loved ones, but you can NEVER take our words.
