We had issues with my kid’s senior year activities. His school does quite a bit for seniors during the spring semester. He missed prom, they postponed and had a crappy graduation ceremony, and they were unable to do their after graduation party referred to as Project Graduation. We had to do a “drive-thru” graduation ceremony. It was so hard on him. However, the counselors did call all the students to check on them throughout the rest of the semester. He senior speech was chosen to be used in their online graduation memoriam, and it was chosen for the statewide senior recognition.

Initially, COVID really impacted my mental health. I always knew how much my friends and family meant to me but I never expected to not be able to see them from several months at a time. Being in the house, not being able to run at parks or not being able to se my friends really made me feel a b it depressed. I was missing families birthdays and weddings were cancelled. I had recently graduated from college and couldn’t have a proper graduation or celebration. Everything felt wrong. I felt alone and I felt disconnect from the world. That is literally what was happening.
I an michelle d white lives born and raised in boynton beach. Historically,i come from a long line of civil-rights activist. Especially when the blacks were trying to integrate the beaches in broward county which they successfully did. The beach today is known as a landmark beach von d mizell-eula johnson state park.eula johnson was my aunt. My aunt eula owned a gas station in the 1960’s. Not many african-americans were likely too not even now. The von d mizell-eula johnson state park was known 60 years ago as the john u lloyd state park colored beach. It is printed that the wade-in demonstrations were epic! My parents met at a historically black college and university as my aunt,uncle,sister and cousins…The great bethune-cookman university founded by a black woman,mary mccleod bethune!
Continue to focus and Educate Yourself no matter how bad it may seem.
Seven months into 2020 and it feels like seven life times. 2020 is a year that needs its on history book just for the first seven months and several editions for the remaining five months. I never imagined in 2020 I would bury my father. I never imagined we would be walking around with face mask on or wearing gloves due to a virus with no cure. I never imagined that a man by the name of George Floyd would bring the whole world to their feet and scream JUSTICE!! I never thought people would burn down buildings, turn over cars, and walk miles in efforts to bring change to an oppressed system against the black race. I never thought that a young lady would be lying in her bed and shot to death by police officers or a young unarmed man out for a run and would be killed by two cowards who felt threaten.These stories have always been a part of the history of the black race. However, 2020 is the year that white, brown and black people were sick of the injustice by law enforcement and other senseless acts. Therefore, we joined forces to fight until we have permanent change. When you think of 2020, think of a year when people looked pass the color of one’s skin and unified in order to create undeniable change.
As a black male i have definitely felt over powdered by the system even though i was a good kid i was stereotyped because i had dreads
Well as an African America young woman i find it very heartbreaking to see our brothers and sisters hurt in such a tragic way.
