Not me!

Not here!

Not my friend!

Not my partner!

Not my kid!

Not my community!

Not my company!

Not my religion!

Not my pastor!

Not my precinct!

Not my experience!

Not my knowledge!

Not my problem!

Not my responsibility!

Not my

Not my

Not my

Not mine!

I didn’t!

I don’t

I wouldn’t!

I won’t

I’d never!

But, they did.

They do.

They are.

They would.

And, they will.

Enough did.

Enough are.

Enough would.

Enough will.



“Not-” is not enough.
