stand in solidarity

I felt it was necessary to share my thoughts with all that is going on around us. I have to be honest with you, I have been back and forth with whether I should say something or just provide support to my community threw my own efforts.

As an African-American woman, who is raising two African-American boys, I felt it was my duty to share all of me. I try my best to be as transparent as possible and I have to say my heart is heavy. Digesting this all is tough, but injustice is not tolerated in my book.

What I can say is although this may be a very uncomfortable topic for many outside of the POC (People of Color) community, racism and police brutality is real, it exists, and most especially in my world.

We all have the power to create change. That starts with educating yourself, looking beyond what is the norm for you, use your platform as a voice, and invoking compassion.

For some, you may not know what to say or what to do. Here's the deal, if you are remaining silent because...

...you are unsure what to say, or... 

...that this isn't your fight...

...or even if this feels like an inconvenience to your life...

...know that you are co-signing on the continued oppression of people's lives. Look beyond yourself, invoke your empathy, and take action. What that looks like:
