Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

This is much bigger than you realize. You all have to get yourselves together. This is everybody's issue. This city will not be taken over by incorrigibles and deviants. He's one step ahead of the blacks and homosexuals. Stop the violence! Stop the violence! You're never gonna get that minute if you're not willing to fight for it. Order, we're gonna have order here! We are not a menace and we will not be silent any longer. God have mercy on your twisted soul. If we every want to be free, we have to stop hiding. All of you combined are stronger than you know. It's an illness. It can be treated. I don't understand! What are you afraid of Wilma? I won't run. I'll fight. We fight until they realize, this is our home and we're fighting with our lives! There's too much left to fight fight. We're an out of the box kind of family. This is not gonna go away. You got a loud voice. We could use another loud voice. No more! I feel in my heart that it matters not who or how we love. You want to be my daughter. I always was. Whoever you are, you are not alone. (Lyrics) And I'll rise up I'll rise like the day I'll rise up I'll rise unafraid I'll rise up And I'll do it a thousand times again And we'll rise up High like the waves We'll rise up In spite of the ache We'll rise up And we'll do it a thousand times again
