"Former FBI Director James Comey Testifies Before Senate"
Written by Gordon Ip & Mila Cuda. Performed by Gordon Ip.

How does this issue affect you or your community?

Gordon Ip: On an individual level, the trial has given me some hope that our justice system will work as intended; when someone breaks a law, no matter how seemingly "powerful" they are, they should be forced to face the consequences. I also think that what FBI Director Comey did was incredibly noble; he had the courage to speak out against an incredibly powerful man, in a situation where Comey stands to lose everything. In addition, he doesn't have much to gain personally, other than justice for the American people.

To my communities, I think this issue is just another in a long line of "incidents" since January of 2017. I believe we are at a tipping point, and I hope that the fatigue experienced from battling and speaking out against similar issues hasn't hurt us so much that we can't continue to fight. Because if this is not enough to change the state of our nation, we need to be prepared to band together and continue the march for justice and equality in America.
