During a break from my quarantine activities, I decided to see what was going on in the world. Since the start of my time in lockdown, I limit how much news I consume on a daily basis. Enough to stay informed but not too much to get mentally and emotionally overwhelmed. And it’s a struggle to find that balance with the state of the world nowadays. I did stumble upon something that made me feel good and hopefully a sign of positive change. Southfield the city I live in, put up “Black Lives Matter” along with “Southfield Strong” banners to show the city’s support and solidarity. Seeing these banners gives me hope that this movement will continue to bring positive change toward ending police brutality and racial injustice. We still have a long way to go and a lot of hard work to do.
Stay safe and keep busy,
