Tonight, I heard the amazing story of a refugee who is actively working to help settle others fleeing violence. After all of the hate and uncertainty of the past few months, he chooses to stay because he still believes in the kind and welcoming America that he saw when he first arrived. #heartheirstories#wecandobetter#wemustdobetter
#marcusGarvey#WordstoLiveby#NowmoreThanEver#People#WeMustDoBetter#AllOverTheGlobe ... We share this Earth , so we are family . We may fallout with each other , but we must practice forgiveness of self & others . We must try everyday to be better people , though no one is perfect , we have to put forth the effort. No matter your Race , Religion or opinion , we bleed the same color and we feel hurt in similar ways . That means we can communicate & can create a great strong positive vibration as well as a negative one . Train your mind to be peaceful & become conscious of what energy you are absorbing & putting out , make sure you are giving & receiving positivity & if not , cut that link ! You only get one life & it's yours to live , so live it to the fullest & enjoy your life ! #Respect#EachOther#Yourself#Nature#Life#Love 🏽🏽🏽🏽🏽🏽🏽🏽 #February#BlackHistoryMonth
The face you make when you hear how much $$$ the city of Petersburg may have to come up with to bring balance back into their universe #wemustdobetter#comeonson#va
I had planned 2 log some miles on the trails this morning...but turned out even with this beautiful weather we're having here in #nyc still some spots that were 2 snowy & i was forced 2 encorporate some street miles as well.
#happysunday my #instarunners#instafamily still coming out of the dark cloud of last week & the sadness of losing another innocent child 2 this monster. My #warrior teaches me the meaning of true strength & it has nothing 2 do with how toned or how many miles one can run. It's the strength of character that shows a persons true strength...2 all those battling #fighton brave ones! U r loved, u matter & u r not forgotten!!
Oh my, I see a much greater concern than the 'bedazzling'🤔. Did you notice the 'MK' flip flops? It's very clear that there're more things caught in bondage than their ankle! The mind (head) is the first attack to destroy the body. While 'MK' is getting richer and richer, our people are being bedazzled, bonded, and blinded#WeMustDoBetter#BlackHistoryMonthRemoveUsFromBondage
Say it with me people "EVERDAY SHUD B INTERNATIONAL CHILDHOOD CANCER DAY!" Today is particularly sad & somber as another #warrior loses her battle here on this earth. Another parent burying their baby, another family shattered & forever changed. As i sit by his bedside today I'm left feeling "when does it end"? When will there be a large enuf outcry from us the adults who r supposed 2 protect our children? How many more innocent children will b lost? How many more parents will grieve? How many more families will b broken???
These questions haunt me, as i know my government & elected officials don't care & r comfortable with the status quo....less than 4% of government funding goes to pediatric cancer research. Make ur voice count! Let ur local officials know that it matters 2 u, that our children & their future matter 2 u! Stand with us!
If you recall, this is 2 year old Sebastian and I just made a visit to him in mid January this year. He's been battling brain cancer and has already had 5 surgeries but as of last month was in remission with follow up scans set for February (this month) to make sure he was still good. As I was headed to the gym tonight his mother messaged me with the worst news possible. Sebastians scans came back showing more cancer in more places and is more aggressive. She was informed that even with radiation, his life span is now looking to be in the 3-6 month range. I spoke with her over text and as I tried consoling her, I cried uncontrollably in the parking lot of the gym. I'm set to see him again early march. When will this madness stop? When will the world realize that these children only get 4% government funding for pediatric cancer and THATS why they're dying left and right? I'm so angry knowing WE CAN DO BETTER but our system chooses not to stand behind these children and their parents. As crushed as I am by this news, I am praying yet again to God for a miracle because I believe in other worldly powers. I believe in blessings and real life miracles no one can explain because IVE SEEN THEM. So my friends please let us pray for our little buddy Sebastian and his family tonight. I will post his gofundme link below as ANY dollar amount will help his mother with whatever else comes next. Thank you and may God be with us... https://www.gofundme.com/jkz75du4
