John Amos' only daughter Shannon decided to take part in a Black Lives Matter protest in Los Angeles, where she wore a mask that read "I CAN'T BREATHE." She wrote a lengthy caption to accompany her picture, which shows her standing in front of a barrier with police officers on the other side.

"The only way we can fully live, is if we grow. The only way we can grow is if we change. The only way we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed."

JOINING THE CAUSE

Shannon joins the growing list of public figures who have stepped out of their comfort zones to join rallies and protests, realizing that sometimes, social media is not enough. Instead, heading out and letting their voices be heard with hundreds of thousands of others is the way to go at this point in time.

" And the only way that we can become exposed is if we step out of our comfort zones and throw ourselves into the open with an open heart! Do it! Throw yourself in!"
