I feel so bad about her death. Like many Christian Black women I did not know who she was or what she stood for and I kinda feel bad for not knowing as well as for her death. When I read the actual findings , where it said she was not shot but actually broke her neck when she fell, and that made cringe. People living in the US have no idea of how good we have it but most of us are not standing for anything anyway.

I know I am rambling on and on but I get this way sometimes. Thanks for having a meaningful blog
I have one as well but its not as meaningful
