When this is all over, let’s be better people. Let us put people in power that want to help the people without a voice because they are the disfranchised.
Let’s have a mental health party!
2020 will be my first birthday without my mom, and I feel so lost trying to figure out if I should let it pass by this year. A year of painful firsts has already taken its toll.
