The wonderful President Barack Obama spoke today to a group of mayors and stated the following: “Speak the truth. Speak it clearly. Speak it with compassion. Speak it with empathy for what folks are going through..”
Oh how I miss President Obama and the beautiful First Lady Michelle Obama. Intelligence, grace, and brilliance. No need to say any more.
In addition, I want to send a special shoutout to my beautiful sisters in office that are holding it down and doing so magnificently: Kamala Harris, Stacey Abrams, Maxine Waters, Shelia Jackson Lee, LaToya Cantrell, Keisha Lance Bottoms, London Breed, Val Demings, and many more.
So thankful for the brilliance and intelligence these women bring to the table each and every day. I know how hard the battle is when you are the “only” one but we must keep going, getting people registered to vote and show up in November. It is absolutely essential!
Also, please continue to stay healthy and do your best to get those workouts in daily. Take a multivitamin each day and be sure to get plenty of Vitamin C to help boost your immunity (Bell peppers are a great source of Vitamin C; also oranges, broccoli, spinach and kale are great as well. Cook them if you must but try eating them raw too. The benefits are immeasurable.)
But above all we must pray. I can honestly say that given what we are faced with in this country, the only real source of hope I have is in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He does not honor the hypocrisy that is so prevalent at this time and He does hear the prayers of those who truly love Him and are truly called according to His purposes.
