So, I pen this article for everyone getting dressed for work, who are putting on their masks. For every student who is not only carrying the textbooks to improve their minds, but who also bear the weight of this reality on their backs. For everyone who has wept this morning because they are sick and tired of being sick and tired.
#Black Lives Matter
You can’t get around it.
You can’t talk around it. You can’t write around it. And, you certainly can’t walk around it. In fact, on any given day, on any given street in Baltimore, you may run right smack into it.
It’s January 2015. The New Year. And, as we welcome our 60th class of trainees to Caroline Center this month, I’ve been thinking a lot about #Black Lives Matter and the important conversations it is generating across the media.
