I never thought in my lifetime that I would have to defend the reason that Black Lives Matter. It has become such an extremely tiring experience of explaining why Black Lives Matter. This summer has truly been a test for a lot of people, myself included.
Watching innocent people murdered for misdemeanor crimes or no crimes at all has really put me in a fragile state of existence. How can we be so cruel? Why do people justify everything? Does anyone have any compassion or empathy anymore? Have we been tricked? Have “they” been tricked?
These are the type of questions that come to my mind. I wish I had the answers to all of these questions, or maybe I do and I just don’t want to believe the truth that I know in my heart.
I have two beautiful children of my own. I worry about both and what the world may try to do them. I pray for their safety. I pray for the world.
