Thank you so much Sandrah and Deidre. I learned so much. I love Sandrah's quote, "And the thing with getting too comfortable is that you're never willing to get out and change things." I have been too comfortable but am committing to changing that.

Sandrah!  You are such an impressive young woman and I'm thankful that you are willing to share your story.  You have experienced so much as a young age. Keep spreading your message, your story is compelling and is positioned well for what we all need to hear now.

Thank you Sandrah. For choosing to make a change in this world and turning your pain into action. What a beautiful choice. Both of your fathers would be so proud, as proud as your mother I imagine!

Sandrah and Deidre - Thank You for sharing your story. I can't imagine going through all that you have. I am inspired every time I hear you speak and it gives me hope for the future. Your statement that, "you can't say you want to change and keep doing the same things" is a powerful truth. We have to get out of our comfort zones to make change. I have no doubt you will do great things and I'm thankful that we have your voice, your power, and your leadership in our community.

Thank you Sandrah for sharing your story!  It was inspiring, insightful, and powerful!  I especially like the part of getting out of our comfort zones.  Apathy is the antithesis of change.  Change is what we need!

Sandrah, You have so much to be proud of. You are helping to change the complexion of our culture. One day, the complexion will be summarized with one word, "American!"

So powerful! To be forcd into adulthood, while still, in reality, a child, and the ability to grow into a student who cares about advancing her community? Words fail me. so blessed to have her as an example to us all! cast your beacon of light onto the world and thank you for being determined to educate us all.

Sandrah thank you. I think you are amazing. I love your attitude. It's good to be a little angry, racism is infuriating. You intellect and experiences are valid. For me you embody hope. We all need more of that these days. There is strength in numbers! I will stand by you.

Sandrah, you are 100% correct that there needs to huge changes to the educational system, especially when it comes to our nation's history.  I am 45-year-old man that enjoyed history and social studies throughout my entire time in school.  I just learned about the Tulsa massacre less than 2 years ago.  I'm sure you have heard the saying "history is written by the victors", but that doesn't apply to the Civil War.  
I also want you to know that you are right, AND HAVE THE RIGHT, to be loud.  Colin Kaerpernick took a knee during the national anthem and explained why he was doing it.  It cost him his career and the public blew him off.  So, obviously, doing things quietly doesn't work either.
