We wrote #NeverBreak in early 2019 & it feels even more meaningful today. It's about a commitment to staying hopeful, resilient and full of love despite the challenges the world may throw at us. Don't give up on fighting for what's right. Don't give up on love. #WeWillNeverBreak pic.twitter.com/JtAQltDpOb- John Legend (@johnlegend) June 23, 2020
