FINALLY, pain is being acknowledged.
It’s about time the collective gets the memo that BIPOC have been broadcasting for hundreds of years.


It’s such a relief.
I’m so grateful.

Now is the time to hear those voices. Now is the time to read those memos. There are millions to catch up on, so don’t waste your time here. I’ll see you next week.
