God-fearing Big sister, servant-leader using my voice to impact positive change for my little brother.
Courageously Concerned is a blog that has remained a forever thought because, quite frankly, I am never settled in what I have done, or with this platform.
I was encouraged by my Momma to create this blog. She told me to use this platform to boldly and courageously inform people of my concerns and create some change.
It was time I used my voice and put some action behind it
When the idea was rolling on in my head [which was almost five years ago now] I was hurt by all that was occurring in our national community.
The unarmed killing of Black men and women in America was painful to hear about. As I tuned into CNN, Twitter, Facebook, there seemed to be some negative news about a Black life lost. It was all over every media outlet. It shattered me, it continues to… every. single. time.
The idea that my baby brother, whom I see as intelligent, a leader, and a great dancer and actor (among other things), has to grow up in a world like this, where his skin color could possibly put a negative label on him, was terrifying. Not everyone is bound to see him in a positive light like I, and the people around, do.
This has to change for all the little Simeons in the world.
Courageously Concerned is here to shed a light and start the conversation on concerns/issues…
