Wednesday afternoon after seeing this picture shared by a few people I had to log off and Wednesday night I began to relive the feelings of the same picture and I had to take off from work at 2 AM. A few of the pictures continue to painfully hit at home for me. I haven’t been able to look at a picture of Atatiana Jefferson … Continue reading Still Tired, Still Triggered, Still Trying
