I wrote a whole other post about my failings as a mother. I had an epic fail today – right off a fucking cliff – and sobbed for an hour as my guilt coursed as readily through my veins as the blood. Hours later, I’m feeling slightly better. Slightly. Gotta pick myself back up and keep goin’, as they say.
Suffice it to say my heart is broken even after I didn’t know it could break anymore. The injustice of police and white racist brutality is too much. And then a bunch of white people say, “Be angry politely, please!” which is its own racist brutality. I thought a killer virus that was sweeping through my nation (and world) was bad enough, but now it’s outright hate and ignorance added on top.
All that to say, this Every Damn Day in June is going to be special. I’m glad you’re here for it!! Expect to find lots of resources on how to do better and more and re-educate yourself on things. Mama’s got ideas.
