I am reminded to choose...joy | Circle of Hope
It is hard to feel joy knowing that any day, this predictable Black-American horror story that seems to be played over and over again on social media may involve my cousins, my father…myself one day. I wrestle with that reality in my mind daily as my breath shallows, my heart rate quickens, my chest and jaw tighten. It is an eternal internal struggle in Black America and yet some days, I choose joy.
