It is funny that this theme start on the date of my oldest daughter’s 14th birthday. But, oddly, it is fitting. In this, during these 30 days, that an amount of reflection is needed and necessary. Through this month-long love letter, I want you–US!–to remember how incredible we as a people are.
Let it be a reminder that we are more than our traumas.
Let it be a reminder that we are more than our failures.
Let it be a reminder that our past is not our future.
Let this series, this theme, be a comfort, a balm and a reminder that indeed being Black is dope, and not everybody can be it.
Love, Peace, & Soul,
