Words can't explain...

Words can't explain how I feel right now. I have a mixture of anxiety, sadness, and pride. I have had to step away from social media to allow myself room to breathe. As of right now there are protests and riots breaking out across the country. I am sad that there even has to be a discussion about certain people, in this case black people, not being treated with respect. Part of me just wants to cry for all of the black people and children that have been killed. The fact that I am a part of this community makes me anxious. It has been my lived experience, so it isn't like I all of the sudden have these feelings. They are just more intense with the current situation. I also have a sense of pride in being black and I am proud of all of the black people and allies who are using their voices and speaking up for what is right. Black Lives Matter.
