Title: BLACK LIVES MATTER

"In this image, I used a photo I took of my friend Joi. She, like many others, has been struggling with the harsh reality of our world very deeply as of late. I'm hoping that the revolution that George Floyd's death has sparked will lead to a large and positive change in not only our country, but in other parts of the world where oppressive systems continue to devastate so many lives." (Click the image to view the post.)
