This Juneteenth , I celebrate my ancestors , the mommas who were tortured and bred with disrespect and cruelty .

I celebrate these strong women , and their midwives .

These women refused to die and their midwives kept them and their offspring alive .

By any means necessary and with the grace of God.

They lived so that I could thrive .

They suffered so that I could sing .

They they cried so that my sons and grandchildren could laugh , create and master their own destinies .

We live for you.

And I thank you all , from the deepest part of me to your brilliant souls .

Never leave my side , mothers – watch over me – guide my steps until I come to join you – I love you❤️
