Breathe Easy, You've Found Me ((HUGS))

People will wonder why this blog is needed, why minority midwifery student? It's very simple actually; I was looking for this blog...but I couldn't find I created it. We all have unique experiences, and every experience, every story, can help someone else. I am a black girl from the hood at an ivy league professional school. That, alone, is reason enough to write. Somebody was looking for this blog. Someone wanted proof that what I'm doing can be done - even when you come from where we come from.

To that person especially, WELCOME.

I'm really sorry, LP. I don't know what else to say except that I hope you and your friend's family are all getting the real time support you need. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers.

Oh! I'm so sorry!

I'll be singing for you -

We are sending you light,
to heal you, to hold you.
We are sending you light,
to hold you in love.

Thank you.

I'm busy distracting myself.

I don't know anything else besides sitting with it, and then distracting...and then sitting with it...

Many hugs and prayers for you and Brittany's family.

May Brittany's memory be a blessing to all who knew her.

You are in my thoughts and prayers. I know how hard it is to lose a dear friend. I lost two in a very short period, one to a car accident and the other was murdered.

You are strong and amazing-and will go on to do wonderful things-Brittany would have wanted you too-

No words can express my sorrow for you and Brittany's loved ones. Sending an all-embracing hug, warmth, and love your way. I am so very sorry.

I'm so wrapped up in theory and exchanging words. I didn't see that something was up for you. You're mourning. I'm so fucking late. Please forgive.

Tears for you. So, so, so sorry. Just take good care and...I don't know what to say...get rest, get hugs, get love...take time...cry...

I wish I could hug you and wipe your tears. Loss is so hard. Do you have support?

Do they know what happened to her. Do they know who did it?
