I can’t be quiet! As a mom of black man I can’t be quiet, as a woman who loves a black man I can’t be quiet. • • I spend a a lot of my time talking about the POWER of Credit! • • But I also have to talk about the POWER of KNOWLEDGE, knowledge of self, knowledge of peace, knowledge of justice! • • Black mothers it’s time to gain knowledge about your rights and exercise those rights! No more protests, no more hashtags, no more kneeling for our men. • • They are NOT hearing us so let’s speak their language! • • Mother’s it’s time to protect our own! • • Protect OUR men like we did when they were in our wombs! • • BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY! • • #imtired #notmine #nojusticenopeace #mysonmatters #myhusbandmatters

I do not apologize for this message. WE ARE TIRED! My black son. My black husband. My black father, cousins, uncles, family and friends. We are tired! At some point, something has to change. This video is from 1993 and the message is still relevant. TWENTY SEVEN YEARS LATER!! That’s a shame.. Nothing has changed! Our HUMAN RIGHTS are violated EVERY DAY in this country. The only way to stop a bully is to give that bully a taste of his own medicine. I am mentally exhausted. And I said what I said. #LessMartinMoreMalcolm #ByAnyMeansNecessary #ImTired #BlackManWeLoveYou #BlackManWeNeedYou #ThisIsAmerikkka

Some days are hard. Some days you are up all night (after working an 11 hour shift) on emergency, then work a 12 hour shift, then stay up monitoring a patient all night because they can’t get to an emergency clinic. Sometimes you eat pizza for lunch two days in a row while waiting for your surgery patient to fall asleep (read this “shoves pizza down throat in about 2 minutes”). Some days you are so exhausted that you don’t get your miles in. It is so easy to fall into the trap that is social media. It’s easy to put our best face forward and pretend that our life is perfect, but it’s not. We all struggle. We all have “bad days” (or bad weeks, or bad months, etc). . . Health and wellness is an ever evolving, always challenging concept (both physically and mentally). Be sure to stop and take time to reset your mind as well as your body. Quiet meditation, comfy jammies, and snuggles with my husband and puppies get me through! . . . In other news, I only work half a day tomorrow! Looking forward to some time on the trail with my “running buddies” tomorrow. 🐶❤️🐶 ....and a nap. . . . #notonemorevet #mentalhealthawareness #veterinarymedicine #vetmed #marathontraining #marathon #fitness #imtired #norestfortheweary #emergencymedicine #krusadersfitness #bagsundermyeyes #messyhairdontcare #atleastscrubsarecomfy #igotpeedontoday

En lieu of current events I decided to do something slightly different for my stream tonight. I wasn’t quite sure what I’d draw or even if I wanted to draw so I decided to draw what’s been on my mind for some time in relation to seemingly escalating tensions in the US. I may or may not clean this up, but I’m the mean time I’ll leave this here. Vid of the stream can be seen on my Facebook page or on my YouTube channel. #lafespaceart #weout #illustration #storyart #justiceforahmaud #justiceforgeorgefloyd #melanin #passport #travel #africa #imout #nospaceprogram #procreate #storyboard #panel #dailypractice #imtired #justiceforbreonnataylor #timetogo

I’m scared. As a new mother of a baby, I’m scared. As a new mother of a baby boy, I’m scared. As a new mother of a BLACK baby boy, I’m scared. As a new mother of an AFRICAN, ERITREAN, DARK SKINNED IMMIGRANT MADE AFRICAN-AMERICAN BABY BOY IM SCARED. I’m afraid that no matter what rules I teach, and no matter what books I buy, how well he’s dressed, or how much I make him enunciate or articulate his words, it’ll be Ebonics to their ears. No matter what, my baby won’t have a fighting chance. I’m scared no matter how smart he will be, no matter how much of Christ is in him, he’ll only be seen for the black boy that he is. A skin color. A target. Not for the way his beautiful smile lights up my day, or the way he cares for those around him. The moment my baby looks like he can point a gun I’m scared as heck he’ll already be deemed a threat. I’m afraid he already has been. What am I to do? What are we to do? #BlackLivesMatter ✊🏿 #africanlivesmatter #icantbreathe #sayhisname #letuslive #time #timeforchange #policebrutality #politics #imtired #imscared #imafraid

One year olds...LOVE me a one year old. Innocent, curious, adorable, cuddly, learning something new every day⠀ ⠀ BUT oh so exhausting to keep up with all day. I’m running out of ideas to keep this one occupied! Her favorite activities include grabbing handfuls of dirt, transferring sand to various places in the yard, opening drawers and emptying them, tasting markers and crayons, being held, knocking over towers of any kind built by big sis, sprinting down the sidewalk, climbing chairs/stools/tables/anything... you get the idea 😜⠀ ⠀ BUT she is growing so fast I’m trying to soak up all the love I can get! AND she turns 17 months today so let’s celebrate some milestones...⠀ ⠀ •says 100+ words⠀ •recently started two word phrases •adds “-ing” to verbs “running!”⠀ •Uses final consonants in words⠀ •uses pronouns “me, mine”⠀ •answers questions⠀ ⠀ I think it’s safe to say that she has benefited from all this time at home with mommy and big sister! Who else is quarantined with a one year old?! 😴👶🏻 #oneyearold #oneyearolds #17months #toddlersofinstagram #babiesofinstagram #girlmom #lifewithkids #quarantinelife #quarantinekids #momlife #imtired #languagemilestones #earlyintervention #slpmom #speechtherapyathome #mommyslp #eislp #speechtherapy #speechlanguagepathologist

"A wise man fears and departs from evil, but a fool rages and is self-confident." - Proverbs 14:16 “A wise man fears and departs from evil"... EVIL. That is one word that definitely describes what happened to George Floyd. Pure evil. No one with an ounce of compassion, care, empathy or even the most basic human decency, would hold their knee on someone's neck (someone not posing a threat to them), repeatedly listen to that person tell you that they can't breathe, and you do absolutely nothing. Don't move, flinch, stop, help... NOTHING. “But a fool rages and is self-confident." One definition of the word rage is: to continue with great force or intensity. That's exactly how officer Derek Chauvin held his knee on George Floyd's neck. And to be able to do so with no regard for George's life, with no care that he was being recorded COMMITTING A MURDER... (let that breathe for a good minute). To be able to do that shows me that he had a level of comfort with this; almost as if he was desensitized to it - as if he'd done it before. An air of self-confidence like he could do what he was doing and get away with it. There's no way that anyone who knows - who has a relationship or true understanding of Jesus - could do this to another human being. Why? Because you would be convicted in the spirit and would depart from evil (just like the verse says). This world needs A LOT more Jesus - not church - Jesus. And the world should still have #GeorgeFloyd #BreonnaTaylor #AhmaudArbery ..................... #imtired #icantbreathe

Hi. I'm not as enthusiastic now. I'm so tired that for a minute I thought the Care Bears were here. Worked "real job" for 5 hours & my side hustle for 6 (for y'all). G'night.

I haven’t said his name. I used to say the names out loud for #Solidarity but the names are too many now, & they are bitter on my tongue. • I’ve never been a fan of the police, every time I’ve come in contact with one they have been #PowerHungry violators of the same law they are supposed to uphold. Hiding behind “the law” forgetting that the #LawOfNature says we should #DoNoHarm & the #LawOfAttraction says #YouGoneGetYours ‼️ • I’m tired, tired of mourning #BlackLives tired of trying not to become numb, but also not knowing what to do. I’m tired. • My grandma said she remembers when the police lived in the neighborhoods, when they got called they showed up & asked questions, pulled you over & then explained how to fix the taillight, got called to the house & reminded those arguing that “all you need is love”. Must be nice grandma. Must be nice. • #Protestors I HOPE THEY BURN IT TO THE GROUND‼️ I mean that! I hope we rage & rage until the racist system is broken beyond repair & we are able to build something that is actually meant to #ProtectThePeople #ImTired 🥺 • • #BlackLivesMatter #StopPoliceBrutality #NoJusticeNoPeace #PoliceThePolice #PoliceBrutality #KnowYourRights #SelfLove #SelfCare #BlackMentalHealth #MentalHealth #Trauma #Healing #SelfPreservation #AmeriKKKa #AmeriKKKanHistory #RageAgainstTheMachine #GeorgeFloyd 🤦🏾‍♀️💔😪 #ThereISaidIt *Images used are not my own, credit where credit is due, please tag them if you know them.*

If I use "excessive" force to restrain a patient of ANY color while working, I'd lose my license, be charged, sued and anything else... Your position/title/job status/or race should NOT allow MURDER to be excused! #ImTired #icantbreathe #nurselife #nurses #blacknursesrock #blacknurseskillinit

Quarantine cocktail after an 8 hour Wednesday in the field. How did I do 12/14 hours days regularly before the pandemic😳. I’m exhausted and needed a stiff drink. Waldorf. Absinth rinse, Whistle Pig Piggy Back Rye Whiskey, Sweet Vermouth, Angostura Bitters. Absolutely delicious. I feel like I should have been born in the 20s. I love strong whiskey cocktails and look great in a suit and a hat. #birdseyeview #quarantinecocktail #waldorf #waldorfcocktail #whistlepigpiggyback #imtired #thatswallpaperinmybasementbathroom

Is racism inherent?⁣ ⁣ Is racism institutionalized?⁣ ⁣ Is racism cultivated?⁣ ⁣ What it should never be is rationalized. “I can’t breathe.”The color of my skin should not dictate whether I get to live or to die. “I can’t breathe.”Being black should not be a death sentence. ⁣”I can’t breathe.” ⁣ My husband should be able to go for a run without looking over his shoulders and my baby boy should grow up believing that he won’t be treated differently simply because of the color of his skin. Unfortunately that isn’t our reality. I admit that I worry as a wife, a mom, and a daughter. I worry for myself as well. But I know I cannot allow fear to have a hold over me, so I will continue to pray, put my faith in a God whose love for us is unconditional. I pray for protection, for peace and most of all love. ⁣ May God allow judgement to be rightfully served. My heart goes out to every person affected by this tragedy.⁣. #ripgeorgefloyd ⁣. . . . . . . .

People won’t agree but, Who do we Blame? Do we blame the ONES that we Know Exactly what to expect from Or Ourselves because THEY know what to expect from US? Marches, postings, hashtags, Tshirts, signs, complaints, etc. THEY sit in their Comfy homes just waiting for it to blow over because for the Most part WE show consistency. CONSISTENCY OF FORGETTING & FORGIVING...until another name is Added. We lean on Celebrities to be the Voice. Where’s our Activists. Where’s Our Faith Based Leaders that Suppose to be there for the Community ? Where’s the Officers’ OUTCRY of STRAIGHT WRONG DOING? We can’t even hold Ourselves ACCOUNTABLE so how can we do it for Someone Else that does Wrong by US. It’s Only Consistent when it hits you’d FRONT DOOR! .

Letter Series: 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝗯𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝘀 𝗮 𝗿𝗮𝗱𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝗮𝗰𝘁 ⁣ ⁣ Dear Black Brothers and Sisters,⁣ ⁣ I worry that I write letters to much. But when my hands are antsy and my body breaks and my heart hurts and I scream at the pain of the world. This is all I can do. ⁣ ⁣ I pray that if you are reading this you log off. You take time for you. You do self care. You live. This is our most radical act. And while we know that our bodies are targets for murder may we also know that we are 𝗯𝘂𝗶𝗹𝘁 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘀𝘂𝗿𝘃𝗶𝘃𝗮𝗹. ⁣ ⁣ Today hit me. Like most days does. For Ahmad Arbery. For George Floyd. For 𝗕𝗿𝗲𝗼𝗻𝗻𝗮 𝗧𝗮𝘆𝗹𝗼𝗿. For my sisters who are gunned down. And when I think about my black tall loving father and I think that his life might be in danger the anger surfaces. ⁣ ⁣ This world is not fair and I will never think so. But I do know that in a space where you do not feel protected protect yourself. ⁣ ⁣ Do what you need. To step back. To find peace. To be angry. Any and everything is so valid friend. ⁣ ⁣ You are loved and beloved. 📷 @ayalayala

Just this Monday I posted a segment on my podcast called “Breathe” because we tend to be consumed by the issues of life, and just life period forgetting that we’re allowed to breathe. And rest. And have peace. But not in America. Not in the land where they chant “All lives matter” meanwhile lynching us in broad daylight. Can we actually “breathe”? I’m petrified, angry, upset, and every other adjective that describes the way my heart and eyes sees and feels. There could be many plausible solutions to this but this is definitely a HEART & SIN issue. Hating another race, specifically the black race, was taught and passed down from generations. I was never RAISED to hate someone by their skin and I don’t want to but it’s so difficult to like the passiveness that I see among other people of higher positions and neighborhood folks. I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired. I could say more .... but my soul is tired. #mylifematters #blacklivesdoesmatter #sincewhenalllivesmatter #wetired #damn #cantbreathe #georgefloyd #ericgarner #aminext #hashtagmyname #getridofhate #solidarity #changeyourheart #educateyourself #enoughisenough #nojusticenopeace #protest #wetired #imtired

I’m still lacking words to describe how hurt my heart is for the black community. I’m white. So, I find myself feeling awkward for trying to say that I have a big heart for African Americans. I’ve had one good friend who’s black. He’s challenged my faith, helped me love life, and grown my love for people in general. My Principal is black. He’s amazing, and he is one the most godly men I’ve ever met. It isn’t a matter of their color that determines their character, but they uniquely and powerfully embrace their identity as that color, confident in who they are. I work with a number of black people as well, who are all a great part of my team and bring different perspectives that I do not believe would exist had they been white. Some may say that’s racist too. I don’t care. I don’t intend it as that. My heart is all about uplifting individuals as unique and special, each with their own God-given calling that isn’t ignorant of race. Black people were born black. White people were born white. That is not a drawback nor a setback. That is an #asset I grieve with brothers and the entire black community over what has been happening to them. What happened to George Floyd both angers me and sickens my heart. I fear that if I was there in that moment I would’ve tackled the officer. It don’t matter who George is or what he’s done. It ain’t right to kill a man like that. I do not support killing somebody out of self-defense. I never have. The only reason a life can be taken is if that life threatens an innocent other’s. Today, I’m hurting with my family. And I’m gonna start joining those who speak up about this. Cause black people are awesome, unique, and special, and they ought to highlighted that way. I’m tired of this pain being throw at and dumped on my brothers and sisters. I’m tired of sitting on my silly rear staying quiet about this too. #enoughisenough #racisminamerica #racismmustgo #imtired #georgefloyd #ahmaudarbery #blacklivesmatter #racism #raceisanasset

I'm just... This just hurts differently. I told myself I wasn't ready to watch the video last night of yet another black human being who was senselessly and unjustifiably murdered by the hands of a cop. But today at work, the video came on the TV. I'm just in pain. I held back my tears in the workplace, but now that I'm home, the floodgates burst. I just can't imagine what his family and friends are going through. George Floyd begged and pleaded for his life so many times. I'm just hurt. I'm shocked. I'm appalled. And yet, I'm cognizant. I'm cognizant that there will still be thousands of people who make excuses for the cops or dig up dirt on Mr. Floyd or assert that if we would just stop resisting arrest, things would be fine. I feel lost & I honestly don't know how people are still living life like normal. #georgefloyd #racism #imtired #enough #blacklivesmatter

A black women created this and a black women will protect him. As a mother to a black son I will give my last breath to make sure he is covered and protected. That he is surrounded by those who will love, uplift, and protect him. I will do everything in my power to prepare him for this crazy world where you will be looked at as a threat simply because of the color of your skin. JJ is in the 96th percentile for height and weight I already subconsciously tell him to be a gentle giant because I know that his life could depend on it one day. Imagine having to talk to your four year old about this. If it breaks your heart it should! So if you think that this doesn’t affect you it does. Whether you have a close friend that has to experience this or you have to raise your kids to treat everyone with respect. We all have a role to play and it does not include closing your heart, your mind, your eyes, or your ears to others suffering. Standing in silence is just as bad as standing against me. THIS IS NOT OK.

I had plans to post something very different today in lieu of the final week of #mentalhealthawarenessmonth, but right now my mental is all over the place. I spent hours today going THROUGH IT. Recounting how many times we keep losing our men and had a heart-to-heart with a mentor who crossed the line of insensitivity that I just couldn’t ignore. It reminded me how easy it may be to forget. Let’s be clear: white supremacists don’t like ANY of us colored folks. They just dislike and fear Africans and Black Americans the most. Don’t ever forget that. Attended @adweek’s virtual summit for diversity & inclusion this afternoon and my West African sistah, @badassboz handed out the mandate crystal clear: Be enraged Be enraged Be enraged Be enraged, not for the outcome of anger, but for the opportunities to educate and speak your mind about how you feel, when you feel it, and exactly why you felt it. For the teachable moments you WILL have when outside opens back up and you come across the #karens and #amycoopers at your job, in the grocery store, and across the street at the park. Never stop taking the chance to unleash the truth, constant observations, and life or death realities that is the daily black experience. I don’t want to reside in a place of rage, but I want to a l w a y s feel it and allow it to ignite the desire to express myself and speak up for our lineage up next to absorb much of what is still wrong with America today. To find ways to brainstorm solutions and consistently show love to my nephews, my brothers, my father—every black man I encounter because the world needs them. I need them. __ While you’re here, send a quick email to [email protected] to fight for those officers to get charged. If you don’t have the words because the day is just too heavy, check @dianaoestreich’s post for a script you can easily copy/paste. Oh. And my prayer partner and sis, @jazzellamckeel is hosting her weekly prayer uplift on this Thursday, 5/28 at 8:30 CST to talk about…you guessed it: dealing with racial trauma. ___ Be well friends. Bout to go #runwithmaud and unload this stress, cuz #imtired

As a mother of TWO black boys (part Hispanic) that will one day be #BLACKMEN I get so concerned about them. This isn’t the world I grew up in where they can walk to the store up the block alone, where they can travel in town alone. Leave my sight for a period, now or older without an issue. I grew up in the crack era in the Bronx and it was safer then than it is now. I have to have a talk with my son EVERYDAY about how he’s viewed. How to speak. When to speak. He hates to hear it bc for him he just wants to live. And I want him to too. But he can’t just live while being black. This is #AmeriKKKa #ImTired #ImHurt #HealTheWorld #BlackMother #MyBlackBoyJoys

I try to stay away from posting my views but My God.. when does it Stop? How much do we have to endure? How many people have to die? God hear Our Prayer Please Seems like we will never be accepted as people who are equally deserving of life. Sadly my wish for my 6 year old son is that he gets to Live his Life without being a hashtag. Sad huh? That my husband and other black brothers will be looked upon as just MEN..Men who We know get up every day and work hard, love hard, are pillars of their communities and Pray hard they make it home to their loved ones EVERY TIME THEY LEAVE THEIR HOMES How many of you are fearful of your kids being out alone? Playing in your neighborhood? Or simply sitting in your own damn yard cutting your grass and being shot for simply being black? This is a fear we have Every. Single .Day If you’re on the other side of this ... or simply if you answered NO to those questions and yes I mean if you’re Non-Black ..This is your time to speak up for these injustices. Because honestly Until YOU make a stand, WE will continue to be murdered in the streets like the Animals they see us as. #ImTired #SickofThisShit #OurLivesMatter #ImNotAnAnimal #LetOurSonsLIVE #ThatIsAll 🙏🏾🙏🏾 🙏🏾✊🏾🙏🏾✊🏾🙃😔😢🙃✊🏾🙏🏾✊🏾🙏🏾
