#31forMARISSA Day 22

Today is day 22 of the national month-long writing campaign for men on the issue of domestic violence and in support of Marissa Alexander, the Florida mother of three who was sentenced to 20 years for firing a warning shot to scare off her abusive husband. Launched by the Chicago Taskforce on Violence Against Domestic Violence , Emotional Justice Unplugged, and the Free Marisa Now Mobilization Campaign, EBONY.com is the official media partner of this critical act of 'emotional justice' in action.
Check out our mission statement here and visit EBONY.com daily through the month of October to read powerful words from men who are committed to seeing justice for Marissa Alexander

Today's letter is short and sweet – it comes from Mueze. He offers his support to Marissa, honors her fight for freedom, acknowledges the unjustness of her sentence and argues protecting those you love – that includes yourself – should not be greeted with a 20 year sentence.

"Dear Marissa" by Mueze

"I pray that your freedom is granted, and from your ordeal, things get better for other amazing women who are dealing with the same fears and heartbreak."

"This world is unfair, this world is cruel, but this world shouldn't keep us from defending what we love."
