College sophomore and totally amazed at how much has changed since last year. Let's see I've:

-Found a new identity as a Christian in a way I didn't before
-Met new people
-Dealt with new stresses
-Plan to take new chances
-Fell even more in love with the beautiful friends & family in my life
And I'm pretty sure life will keep changing in new ways but that's ok. Slowly, but surely, I'm getting the hang of it.
I hope you are too. If you're not, let me know. PEACE!

When I read the story of Jada, so many emotions took hold of me. Anger, disgust, frustration, and sadness…Once again, a young Black girl’s body had been violated in the worst of ways. Even worse, her assault went viral on social media. Her assault went viral (the fact that the words assault and viral are being used in the same sentence makes me view humanity with a new level of disgust). Jada is fighting against her attackers and she is reclaiming her narrative and body.
Rape culture is real. Sexual violence is real. Gender-based violence is real. The continuing legacy of sexual brutalization of Black girls and Black women in this country is real. The sooner we acknowledge these truths, the sooner we can begin to dismantle the systems that continue to perpetuate rape culture.
She is fighting. The least we can do is stand by her and fight with her.

I like that the words “knit” and “woven” are used in Psalm 139. You were not simply spoken into existence as God did with the earth. You have been hand crafted and beautifully put together. God spent time making you who you are. And there is nothing worthless about you.

If you want to be proud of yourself, then do things in which you can take pride.
