Recently, our community has faced tough times. Black lives seem to be valued as less than those of our non-colored neighbors. Death is rampant and no one seems to care. People seem to have forgotten their worth and the power they hold. This has been said thousands if not millions of times but I feel it should be said again: You are important. You have the power to make a change! If you feel like you can contribute to change speak out and go initiate it!
