One Answer As To Why I still think the impact of racism & slavery matters today

While I know I should forget what YOU did-not-do to me and had no part in, from my past;

It does not make for denial of my experience and all that I’ve suffered which unfortunately cannot be erased that fast;

I will strive not to blame you if you strive not to ask me to deny what it means today;

There is much work that you have done to compensate for the present struggles of others which I cannot begin to repay;

I’m grateful, I  give you that; but what I also give you is the need that we have together to right wrongs;

So that the deeply woven harms created by centuries of evil men and women, this time around, won’t last as long.

Advocate for Health Equity and Social Justice just because I believe I'm to be a bridge for our broken world. My objective is to find a balance of truth, yet love for all who have a desire to see our world push through this hard space of indifference
