“The birth of my daughter is the greatest gift that I have ever received. She also is my greatest responsibility. In a world that presents obstacles for her success, it is my duty to move the apparent ones out of her way and prepare her for the unforeseen ones to come. I’m encouraged that our collective voices are being raised to highlight the challenges that we as Black people face. I will do my best to amplify those voices to create a better world for her to grow and thrive in. My fear is that our society’s worst elements are speaking out as well and trying to drown us out. If I could teach my daughter only one thing, it’s that she should never be afraid to stand up for what’s right and just.”
