I’m feeling surprised and saddened by the news of Toni Morrison’s death.
Today is only one day in all the days that will ever be.
So, I feel saddened that the world had lost such a humanitarian and strong advocate.
My very earliest and most cherished memories of Aretha Franklin were memorizing her songs as early as Elementary School (imagine a seven year old belting “Respect” and “Natural Woman” and “Chain of Fools”).
I want to end by writing, if you or someone you know or love (or even someone you’re just newly acquainted with) is struggling, please know that there is help and support. Don’t give up, speak up!
