Show Notes

This eipisode is emotion-filled and raw, yet still gifts coaching, cocktails, & conversations.  Yes, I'm angry and disheartened, yet conditioned to see always see a glimmer of hope. May you remind yourself that IT IS OK NOT TO BE OK!  It is ok to sit in the power of your pause, UNAPOLOGETICALLY!  With the violence that's been thrust upon our black boys and men, I am giving you all of me.  As a Black mother raising a Black Young Boy, the murdres, senseless acts of violence, and hate-filled streets hit hard and spun me in a momentary interruption that I wasn't ready for.   Question for you - When you say the names of the Black and brown boys, men, women, and girls who have been murdered by police or hate-filled citizens (that we know of), what do you think about?  When you say your name, what do you think about?  When you hear my 8-year old son (Minute 22:44), what do you think about?  SAY MY NAME! AND MEAN IT!  DO YOU KNOW THE POWER IN YOUR NAME?
