A Love Letter To My Sisters In Christ

My sisters in Christ, please do not lose faith. Do not lose your fight. We have so much work to do for one another, so many battles to face, so many dreams and beliefs to push for. We cannot give up. And we cannot believe He has given up on us.

Dear Shonda Rhimes, Thank You For Your Ferguson-Inspired Episode

In this fictional episode, we see so much reality – the experience of another Black life being unjustly taken, the pain of a father who lost his child, the emotions of a protesting community after the fact, the disagreements between members of the same racial identity who see justice differently on how to deal with racist systems.
