A fear I grew to know for 4 years and changed so much in our lives. The 4 year storm is finally over. Now I cry out of relief. I cry as I look around and see the damage done...but my heart is full of hope. It's time to pick up the pieces and NOT rebuild but BUILD anew.

I can't stop crying. It's a painful cry. The pain you would feel being reunited with family after being held hostage for 4 years. The kind of cry you imagine when someone on life support dies after 4 years of agony. A painful cry, that it is finally over. That my fear is dead..

"I'm looking forward to decency being restored to the office of the President. I'm ecstatic to see a woman of black and Indian descent breaking the glass ceiling.

I am looking forward to more COVID vaccines, I want there to be justice for Black people, more taxes for the rich, minimum wage increase, LGBTQ matters, and for ICE to be abolish as well as not seperating immigrant families

I'm looking forward to not awaking every day with a sense of dread over what our President has said or done while I was sleeping. I'm also looking forward to activists pushing Joe and Kamala towards fighting for justice and rights...

Our work is not done by any means but we have taken a huge step forward and I am happy to be able to take a small break in order to celebrate our new President and our first woman and person of color Vice President.

BOY BYEEE

While the fight to end white supremacy will continue, today, let’s take a moment to breathe a sigh of relief. To spread Black joy. And if you want…. to dunk on this idiot.
