30 DAY HAPPINESS CHALLENGE (DAY 18)


DAY EIGHTEEN

Task: Let go of unhealthy relationship
A man was lynched yesterday and the day before. My heart is so heavy I grieve with all the families that were affected by this brutality. We are in the 21st century for God's sake! Why is it so hard to let history be history? Why is it so hard to place value on people's lives? Why does skin color matter? Why do we have to be divided by ignorance? WHY?!

 When all of these shootings started Trayvon, Sandra, Mike, and so many others. I was angry. Hell I was bitter, because I know the value of life and what it means to grow up black. What the struggle is. I know what it  feels like to be the minority. It means you have to work harder than others, strive, suffer, endure, sacrifice, be patient, most times obedient while your rights arbefore. My heart is so heavy I grieve with all the families that were affected by this brutality.

It means you have to work harder than others, strive, suffer, endure, sacrifice, be patient, most times obedient while your rights are being taken away. It's not fair that we still have this issue in the 21st century, in the MODERN AGE.  

My heart is so heavy. It's time for us to put our weapons down and come together as a community because our race is under attack. All lives matter, but #blacklivesmatter. Stop the killing, stop the brutality, stop the racism, stop the discrimination. This is the 21st century and I expect to see change, not history repeating itself.

P.s. I promised myself I wouldn't do this but this hurt me really bad.
