Repost from @wearepwitp #BreonnaTaylor should be celebrating her 27th birthday today. Instead, we are demanding the long awaited #JusticeForBreonnaTaylor. Sign the petition: https://www.change.org/p/andy-beshear-justice-for-breonna-taylor?source_location=discover_feed

Breonna was senselessly murdered by the careless actions of Louisville Metro Police Department — the very people sworn to protect her. Breonna was an EMT, who dedicated her career to helping and saving others. Today, let’s honor her and make our voices loud.

More information on how to honor her and seek justice in our Instagram story (@WeArePWITP). #birthdayforbreonna #nojusticenopeace #policebrutality #blackfuturesmatter #sayhername

Repost from @ibramxk

“ I want to make some things plain. Police violence has historically been the source of the violent rebellions of Black people and their allies. Police violence begets violent resistance. If you want to end the violent resistance, then end the police violence. It is coldblooded to expect any group of people who are being constantly terrorized, brutalized, and killed by police officers to never react in violent rage. It is coldblooded to demonize violent protesters and not the violent source of their rage.

It makes me think about the bully who constantly harms the bullied away from cameras. Then after one brutal killing on camera, the bullied strike back violently against the bully. Then the cameras arrive to see the bullied striking the bully. Then the blame strikes the bullied and exonerates the bully.
However, let’s not equate violence against property to violence against people. These demonstrators primarily engaged in violence against property. By contrast, officers around the country have been primarily engaged in violence against people.

And don't call for non-violent demonstrations if you aren't calling for non-violent police. Then again, when has U.S. policing ever been non-violent? A history of violent and lawless policing has caused people to fear cops and their defense attorneys (i.e. prosecutors). That's why people want to abolish the police”.

Quarantine is hard. Parenting is hard. Parenting in quarantine has some next level moments of hard.
.
.
I am now not only the annoying mom, I am the mean, short tempered annoying teacher of 3rd grade.
.
.
I am a working mom who no longer has an external office I can go to and get work done.
.
.
Even on good days I don’t want to homeschool. I also desperately need space and time to myself.
.
.
I worry my daughter will only remember this period by how many times I yelled at her to “focus” or “pay attention” or “for the love of god finish your assignment.” 😩
.
.
Then there are moments like this. Group hug and head rubs. Too tired to argue and fight with each other anymore. We are in a love time out.
.
.
Day by day. Getting through this. Deep breathing to remember what really matters.

Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.
– Mason Cooley

EXACTLY. I have not read any fiction since I started Necessary Media 3 years ago. It felt indulgent and truthfully there was so much “work” to be fine and so much I had to learn about entrepreneurial life that I couldn’t justify reading anything that didn’t support my business knowledge.
.
.
Thank you Covid 19 for allowing me to get back to what I lOVE, reading fiction specifically mysteries and thrillers and well crafted takes with a dark side.
.
.
I HIGHLY recommend My Sister the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite. I absolutely couldn’t put it down. It is dark, twisted and then the main character Korede’s dry sense of humor and her loyal but ever tested relationship with her charmed but deadly sister Ayoola - seals it as a desert island classic for me. Brilliant! 5 stars.
.
.
I also really enjoyed 8 Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson. It easily grabs your interest and lures you into its puzzle. But for me the HUGE plus of this book is all the other classic and little known mysteries it references with in the story. You don’t have to search for the next good read- this story gives you lists of them!
.
.
What are you reading during the pandemic? Please share!! Reading is 💯 necessary media right now. 📙📚🤓🤩

“Change by definition is uncertainty. “

SO. MUCH. DAMN. CHANGE. Am I right?!? This past week the entire world changed. If you are like me, it’s been triggering, terrifying and sometimes very liberating.

Jobs are cancelled or gone or on hold indefinitely. We don’t know what the toll on our families, friends and society will be. . SO MUCH UNKNOWN.

What I DO KNOW is this: WE GOT THIS. YOU. GOT. THIS. .

I am inspired by the global efforts to help each other, to laugh, to connect and to capture and share moments on social media that keep each other hopeful, safe, healthy and less alone. .
.
I am inspired by my daughter in the video. She has a basic idea of what she is doing but has to figure it out and get through all the false starts and her internal doubts. She has to find her courage and her willingness to proceed even when she “doesn’t know” the outcome. .
.
This is a small, silly moment in a currently very serious world. .
.

But real life change is 💯 here and it’s time we put on our metaphorical pink helmets and pads and brave the uncertainty with each other.🙌🏼🙏🏼♥️💯 .

2020 it’s time we send the pitch, write the screenplay, direct the short film.... make BIG, SCARY, creative moves.
.

Fighting the good fight has never been more important than it is right now. It feels like evil, hate, greed and fear are still winning. It’s crushing, terrifying and it must continue to mobilize those of us who tell stories that connect, unify and speak truth to hate.

We are ready. You are ready. Here we go!!
