The truth is, I'm a little bit different than most of you. At least on the outside. I have a different perspective on things, and I have experienced this country differently than most of you have.
But I am also your friend. I am your neighbor. I am the lady that goes out of my way to hold the door open for the elderly couple, and brings food to her neighbors when they are too sick to get out of bed. And at times, I feel compelled to speak out when something needs to be said. This is not done to be spiteful or make you feel bad, this is done to remind you that certain things do happen. I have a voice and was blessed with the ability to make good use of it.
At the end of the day, we may look differently. We may live on different sides of the neighborhood. But this is my home too. And when it's my time to go and I'm reflecting on my time spent on this beautiful planet, I want images like the one above to be the ones I remember.
