The job isn't done. Borrowing from the words of Martin Luther King used in his last speech, we have crested the mountain and descended part way down the slope but we as a nation and society still have not reached the promised land for black Americans or ourselves.
Now is the time to complete the journey as one nation to fulfill the promise of our Declaration of Independence. That all are created equal. That everyone's unalienable rights are not denied. That all enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
It can be hard to see in this time of pandemics and protests to see what one person can do given the larger events happening. Remember that the mighty river is born of numerous small streams. If each of us contribute what we can when we can, we will all reach the promised land together.
Black Lives Matter.
Stay safe and stay healthy.
