How come you can be laying in bed with the one you love the most and still feel so lonely?
I wonder how come its so easy for you to sleep at night
"I live in a neighborhood where my husband & I are 1 of the 3 Black families that live here.. Tonight the KKK knocked on our door!!! I was already looking out the window and seen them coming down my driveway. I screamed for my children to come upstairs in my room and into my master bath. . As I seen there faces in fear.. my mind flash back to Malcom X. My oldest understand but not the rest. My husband prides his self on teaching his wife & family self defense when he not home…. My heart was pounding! Palms sweating! Voice weak.. I look at my son.. And my mind drifted to Micheal Brown, Treyvon.Martin, Shawn Bell. WE legal over here.. everything registered! As the knocks kept coming .. I mustard up the voice strength to say just a minute! My body weak.. but my mind strong! I open the door.. Scope on! Beam on! Safety off!!! WHAT CAN I DO FOR YALL!!! Cause you at THE WRONG HOUSE! #FacesPriceless!! I will Protect. My Home, My Children, MY LEGACY!!!"
Its 2014 guys…. For all the “Slavery happened 400 years ago” …this!!..THIS IS HAPPENING IN 2014
This gives us white people a name and that absolutely disgusts me. Im saddened that people find that color matters.
So, a person I went to school with, who has lost two of her children posted this, and I would really like to participate. Honestly, I don’t believe women who experience infant and pregnancy loss get to experience full healing because they seem to be dismissed by society. It has even been suggested to not announce pregnancies until you are out of the “possible early miscarriage” stage of pregnancy. A life lost is still a life lost.
I have a few friends who have also experienced the death of their children, and I would really like to show them we recognize and grieve with them, for the loss of their child. I want them t know that their suffering and their grief is just as valid as any other, they are not pushed aside as society believes it should be. If you would be so kind to light a candle at this time in your area, and tag me, I would love to create a master post to share with them. If you could include your time zone that would be great.
Thank you friends!
For sweet Bailey Grace.
I don’t know if this counts, but my brother Jimmy Scott was born with a genetic disease that was bound to take him by two… but he lived four years in pain, never speaking or walking. Even though he was born and died years before I was even a thought, I still call him my little brother. This loss hurt my father desperately and it’s a miracle that I’m here and that he was open to trying one more time for a child. So please, it would mean very much to me if we lit a candle for all the little brothers and sisters we never really got to meet.
