healingI know.  This probably seems like an odd choice to represent healing as far as some of your are concerned.  But the reality is that we need some serious healing in this country and one of the biggest wounds relates to race.  As I work on my second book with Duchess Harris, I’m still getting flack for the first, Black Lives Matter.  Just last week it was carefully explained to me that by not allowing black children to ignore the realities of their lives in the caring environment of school, I am giving them toxic stress.  We need to heal but to heal we need to open our eyes.
