for all the bbs who feel entirely too deeply: remind yourselves that you can’t let the weight of this world leave you feeling hopeless. keep loving, keep hoping, keep dreaming, keep praying.continue to feel, continue to cry, to be angry…just don’t let it consume you, okay?

I am watching some of the people who mean the most to me in this world be consumed by this and I want to just share the burden so that we can feel other things too. I want to stand by their sides while we feel anger and pain and betrayal and distrust and helpless, because in standing together we can also feel love and hope and maybe even fleeting moments of joy. We can be Black and free and happy all at the same damn time.
