Persistence @AlliciaSaldana

My heart remains in a constant state of hope.


It prays daily for my children.


It begs the world to see they are more than the color of their skin.


It sings their praises.


It mourns their disappointments.


It encourages them to persist.


My heart remains in a constant state of hope.


It dreams of a moment when my children are accepted for the multi-faceted individuals they are.


It believes there will be a place where they are never too white or too brown.


It knows all children deserve love, acceptance, and opportunity.


It aches as the world tears at their dreams.


It encourages them to persist.



My heart remains in a constant state of hope…
