Today I am in a mood. I cannot stop thinking about the tragedies that continue to take place in this country. July is my favorite month and while I would typically share more photos from the Fourth of July or rattle off a list of favorite baby shoes. This week I can’t. I don’t want to, so I won’t. What I can do is try my best to express how I am feeling inside and the million heavy thoughts that are floating around in my head and weighing down a heavy heart. These three posts from the past couple of days have resonated with me and I wanted to share them in the event you have not had the chance to see them.

The column, Alton Sterling and When Black Lives Stop Mattering, by Roxane Gay in the NYTimes OpEd. Go read it.

I am still in a mood and just had to say something. Take a stand people none of this is right.
