2020 has definitely flipped the world on its axis. As the new year began i don’t think anyone planned for 2020 to turn out the way that it has. it makes you wonder, whats going to happen next. This has really been a stressful year to say the least. With the unknown of the corona virus and the Killing of another black person by the police, i can sense things are shifting. I hope and pray that we as a community can work together to get through this. Because its times like this when we are stronger together then we are apart. These are times when we need to lean on each other, and help one another. lets just hope that when 2021 comes around that things will have gotten a little better.
Over the last few days I’ve been trying to put into words about how I feel about everything going on. First off I want to say that I am keeping George Floyd’s family in my prayers. What happen to him was horrible and it shouldn’t have happened. But sadly too often it does happen.
This is the time to take your blinders off because racism still exist, it has always existed. The black community is still fighting the same fight that our ancestors fought. Instead of going forward this country has gone a thousand steps backwards. When is it going to stop.When is enough going to be enough. Why is it all you see is the color of our skin. Why are we not worthy, why aren’t we good enough. We are tired, we are sick and tired. Our skin color may differ then yours but we are the same. We feel the same, we hurt the same just as you do. I matter, the black community matters. Black men,women, and children are intelligent,talented,beautiful,strong,and resilent. We are more then the color of our skin.
I want better for future generations to come. Nobody should have to live in fear. I Hope and pray that one day change will come.
