    I grew up admiring the women and men in my family for their constant, unwavering strength in a society that was not built for them. I use their stories to motivate me and to keep going regardless of the obstacles that may come my way like the generations of marginalization and oppression that impeded us to pursuit freedom and equality; to systemic institutional and cultural factors that continue to impede quality of life at disproportionately high rates, it can be argued that trauma is an integral part of the Black Male and Female American experience, as baked in as the legacy of mistreatment that continues to impact their everyday lives.

We live in an ocean of air like fish in a body of water. By breathing we are attuned to our environment and atmosphere. If we inhibit our breathing we isolate ourselves from the medium in which we exist. Everybody breathes. It’s a fundamental activity that we do all every day. When our breath ceases, everything around us loses all importance. Our breath should be our first priority, yet we tend to ignore it until it becomes a problem. The reality is that…
