This day was rough. Emotionally, mentally and physically. Earlier in the day, I had so many things to say to you. Tonight (well, 12:03am) I can't do it. For that I apologize. We're all going through things here, very immediately, that are challenging us, angering us, and causing us to question. This is very good. It is also very difficult. I am blessed that these people are here with me. I am blessed to be here. I am even blessed to be experiencing the confusion and frustration. Just know that what is going on here is changing us, changing me.
For the day's events, I encourage you to read my co-authored blog written today with my friend Kiarra McCain titled "Lights camera actuality." Kiarra has written a beautiful poem that expresses feelings from a very trying part of the day. I tried my best to depict what was seen and experienced throughout. To call it a brief overview is an understatement. This may be the best I can do in describing the situation for a while, as I don't believe I will process this all very quickly. For now, I just hope I did it justice.
Danny, Mom, Dad, Denise, friends and family, I love you.
