What can I do? I’m just one person #TrayvonMartin

I’m a mother. I’m a mother of two children. I’m a mother of two African America children. I’m a mother of a young Black man and a young Black woman, neither of whom will get a fair shake at anything in this world because of the color of their skin.

I remember being a kid in my neighborhood. I lived in suburban Pittsburgh in the 70s (1970s not 1870s) in a small town, which I lovingly remember as feeling like a hamlet. The town had brick streets, sidewalks, beautiful big trees lining the streets, front porches and kids playing out front. Most, if not all . . . → Read More: Are our kids overscheduled?
