bonding over pain that no parent should have to feel
Emmett was 50 years ago - this goes back generations. Mike Brown was not an isolated incident. Trayvon was not an isolated incident. Jordan Davis was not an isolated incident. Our families have got to stop suffering through this.
#1 Just because you mean everything you say doesn’t mean that anybody else does. Even if you are the nicest, most truthful person you will still get screwed over. You never finish getting to know someone.There’s no one else you can trust.
#2 Boys will whisper sweet nothings in your ear and sometimes they’ll scream the sweet nothings to the world, but that doesn’t make them true. Do not let him make you believe that you are the center of his world and never let him be your center. You are your own person. It’s okay to be love, but love yourself first.
#3 Everything takes time. You can cry but that’s not going to change anything. Don’t try to grow up too fast because you’ll miss out on the best parts of your life.
#4Life will be horrible at times, but it’s still beautiful. It might rain, the sun might shine, but no matter what you have to smile. Smile until your cheeks hurt and never let anyone wipe the smile off your face. #5 You have got to aim high when you dream. Believe in yourself. Do whatever you set your mind to. Become someone. Go somewhere with your life.
And even when you frustrate me, I still want you by my side.
