Hello Concord Family,
Hope you are all doing well!
It feels so good to be back to writing my blog again, with all that is going on in the world and within our own state it has been important for me to take time and reflect. I usually focus my blog on school and academics which I will talk about in this post but there is a cry for change going on that I must talk about also.
It feels so weird to say but I am officially a Junior in college, I do not know where time is going but it all feels so surreal to me. When I started this year, I had goals for myself to push myself to be even better then I was before. I can say that I am really proud of myself and I feel like this semester has been my best semester grade wise.
Now that I am a junior, it feels like is finally hitting me. As I start to focus on taking my LSAT and applying to law schools, I am excited to enter Junior year in the fall and to learn all over again. I don’t know what Junior year will entail but I know that I will continue to push myself to the best I can be academically.
Nelson Mandela once said, « No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love. For love comes naturally to the human heart than its opposite. » With all that is going on, this quote really speaks to me. Not long ago we all found out that George Floyd a black man was killed by a white cop. Hearing this news broke my heart and left me feeling empty. Everyday us black people are treated unequally and constantly face police brutality. Being born black is not a crime and it is high time people start treating us equally.
We have come to the point where not only do we demand justice for George Floyd but we demand equality and justice for every black person in this country. Enough is enough and the cry for change has started and it is making waves.
I am extremely proud to be a black woman, I will continue to fight for the equality of black people because we are humans as well and I will continue to be an advocate for change.
The world is changing, people are finally standing up for what is right. The fight will continue and us black people will be treated with respect and equality.
I hope everyone is doing well at concord.
Until Next Time,
