Tear Down and Build Back

I don’t believe in pink elephants, nor do I believe in willful ignorance. Over the last 4 years I have battled with trying to understand how political leaders allowed their beloved America to fall apart like this. I never thought I would live to see the day where the great USA would be the laughing stock of the world. As an individual, and as collective citizens of this country, we have all suffered an unexpected loss of some sort this year. The last 4 years have been hell on earth, and 2020 was the grand finale.

I now understand the phrase “you hate me more than you love yourself” more than I ever have before. To hold on to rabid racism, sexism, and everything awful, even if it means watching this democracy fall apart, just to uphold your horrible ways is a lot more powerful than we would like to believe. At this point everyone’s feelings about this election have been exposed. I personally have my feelings towards politics and voting, but that’s another topic for another day.

I was fortunate enough to be raised by a Jamaican mother that also taught me the significance of African American history in this country. So not only do I have pride in being Jamaican, I am also a very proud first-generation American. I have the highest respect and reverence for those who came before me so I can live the life I live now. I am a part of the first generation post-segregation and I don’t take that for granted at all. To know that you are going to be killed if you voted, and still vote anyway only means to me that how dare I not vote!!!!

I don’t know about you, but I cannot live another 4 years like this in this country. Do yourself and all of us a huge favor…….AND VOTE!!!!!!

Love and Vibes,
Nichole Naomi
