Hello Ezinne. I think you are a beautiful writer. I truly hope we see change in our lifetime that is positive. I know I am fortunate to not have lived the moments you wrote about here. I have had to deal with bad cops before, but I have also dealt with good ones too and I hope those who are innocent quit paying the price for those who are guilty in any group or race. It is 2016 and forward progress has stopped. It should be the opposite and the logic of why we are not is absent.
Keep writing and I’ll keep reading. Until then — appreciate your strength is needed by others.
