This is the America that we, as African Americans have lived since 1919, in one form or another. Then there is COID, a virus that is killing thousands daily.

In our life time there are so many stressful situations that we can control that must and so many we can't I live by the Serenity prayer:
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can;
