I have finally decided to follow through with an idea I have been thinking about for two years. The idea was to share what's on my mind in front of the camera for a few minutes. For me, this is an endeavor to hone my speaking skills and being vulnerable with the thoughts on my mind.
We live in a world where the discussion of race has become stressful and even avoided. There are many variables as to why this is the case.

We are all doing our part in these trying times and we should continue to take precautions for the well being of others. As our stress levels go up; our immune systems go down. For some, this puts them at a higher risk. I wish no harm to anyone and if wearing a mask helps in doing so, I will remain diligent with wearing a mask...especially the dare to live every day mask!
