Kimberly: I’m undergoing a tremendous amount of pain during this time. This pandemic has kept me from being able to travel in order to stay by my father's bedside as he suffered alone and not being able to attend my father's burial. Thanks to COVID-19.
Corey: I am good. I am thankful. I am healthy. Trying to stay sanitized and sane…lol. In addition to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, as a Black man, I have to navigate systemic racism and the racial injustices that have been plaguing Black lives for far too long, most recently with the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. These tragedies have lit a fire under me.
These past few months have taught me that everything can be taken away in a flash. The coronavirus shut down is a reminder this is our now and it will be a while before the world recovers. My advice is to create your own blueprint and learn to live in the now because we are seeing every day that tomorrow is not promised.
