My PSA to African Americans

My people, my people!!  I’m tired of shaking my head at you!!!

In the year of 2018, there is no need to have to solicit money via GoFundMe® accounts to fund relatives funerals. I am aware of the price tag that comes with a death of a family member but just in case you were not aware there’s this thing called LIFE INSURANCE. This is an essential for every person in your family. Not only is it an essential it is a necessity.

No person or family deserves the added stress of not being able to afford to bury a family member because a life insurance policy wasn’t in effect. And if a policy doesn’t exist collaborating amongst your family to get the money is better than begging for it through a third-party app or account.

Oh, another thing. Most jobs offer life insurance polices during your duration there. This really is the least that one could do.  Jobs with benefits are important.  I’m just saying.  It’s 2018.  It’s time for us to do better, collectively.

Don’t hate the messenger.  Hate the message and accept that the truth hurts sometimes. Besides a great person leaves an inheritance to his/her children’s children.

My heart is in pieces #Parkland

Last night I sat in bed and just scrolled my Twitter timeline and read all the text from students who sent “I love you” text to family and friends. Not because it was Valentine’s Day, but because their school was under attack.  They were living in the moment of a mass shooter running through their school in Florida.  Pictures showed them on the floor under desk with classrooms being invaded by police.

I’ll always love you! [RIP CLT JR]

Today’s mood is melancholy.  I cry internally over the lost of my uncle frequently but especially today because it’s his birthday.  Two years ago today, he laid in a hospital bed with little response.  Suffering from pneumonia and lack of oxygen that he would never recover from.  A few weeks later he passed away.  Sometimes, life is just hard.  This is has certainly been a very hard pill to swallow.  It still feels so unreal.  I don’t come with ways to deal with grief, how to move through grief, or even ways to get your mind off of missing a beloved love one.  But I write to say that no matter where I am in life my favorite uncle will forever live in my heart and he shall forever live through me!

Happy Birthday, Unc!
