MOVING FORWARD WITH INFLUENCE
It's OCTOBER. What a journey this year has turned out to be. Why hasn't the heat gone away? Many of you, like myself are still semi sheltering in place and experiencing social anxiety at the thought of leaving the house. Others like my siblings can't stand being in the house and have started to venture outside more and more. If you choose to go outside, please continue to wear your mask and be deliberate about washing your hands before you touch your face. Sacramento like other places nationally has once again been rocked by violence as we lost 4 young people to gun violence, 3 in this last weekend alone. We send our deepest heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of those taken. We also lost another Black male life to police murder (Jonathan Price). It's maddening and exhausting all at the same time. We are here to listen if you want to talk, or just be around people who understand, who will not respond with judgement but intentional love and empathy. That is what we are building and we want you to join us! I'm thinking and praying for a reprieve but in the meantime - We will stay committed to operating in our lane and doing our part!
