I saw the news about Justice Ginsburg while my husband was reading bedtime stories to my son. I felt hollow. The characters in the book ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, so my son asked for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich as a bedtime snack. I went to get him one, and added three plantain chips and three gummy bears to the plate as surprise treats. I felt so cheered by this simple act, and my son was so delighted by the snack. This is it, I thought. I’m so scared and so disheartened, but when I keep this, parenting, in front of me, I feel better.

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.
We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
