Letter: America is battling racism

All people are given unalienable rights when they are born. Why can’t they be treated equally? What made it so black people aren’t equal to white people? There is no legitimate reason for this.

As I am walking through my most difficult storm, I was encouraged to find things to be grateful for and write them down. I decided I would follow their counsel.
