 Today I Cried

Today I cried for all those who have died from the corona virus. I cried for their loved ones who are left behind with a empty space in their heart. Today I cried for all the beautiful black and brown men and woman who were killed because of police brutality. Today I cried for all the social injustice  and the systemic racism that my community is facing. Today I cried for the lost of Chadwick Boseman, Kobe Bryant and all the other actors and athletes that have left us way too early this year. Today I cried for this upcoming presidential election, because of all the hate, lies,  and ugly names that  I will hear in these next upcoming months. Today I cried for the millions of Americans who are out of work because of Covid19.  Today  I cried for millions of Americans who don't have healthcare. Today I cried for all the healthcare workers, doctors and nurses who are on the front line fighting this virus. I cried for all of our students who have to learn a new way this school year and the teachers who have to teach a new way. Today I cried because every time my son leaves out the house to go to work or to the the store my heart skips a beat and pray as hard as I can that he comes home safely. Today I cried for my daughter that she would not be pushed away from having a seat at the table because of the color of her skin. Today I cried. I cried  because we won't be having any family gatherings this year. Today I cried till my nose turned beet red and my eyes began to swell. Today I cried. I cried till my head hurt. I cried cause I miss my mama. Today I cried out to God to please help heal our land.  Today I cried.
