Thanks Mike. You are right about the battle fatigue. It gets to a point where you are tormented with what you could be doing every second of every day to minimize the pain in your community.

I have nightmares of my brothers being pulled over and shot. Or my cousins. This is the reality of being Black in America.

There is no time to rest. Tomorrow could be your turn.

I guess I will be tired forever.
