Hey,

I hope you are well. Well, I have good news. We have a great window of opportunity that has presented itself. The death of the black American George Floyd is an opportunity for us to press for equality between races. An opportunity for us to press for respect for human rights beyond our colours.

The time for change is now. On my blog post, I have compiled views from seven students from different parts of the world concerning this important conversation- #BlackLivesMatter

Here we go- https://www.patiencenyange.com/blacklivesmatter-we-are-not-equal-until-w... What are your thoughts on this?

Hi Patience,

How are you doing? You're quite right that the death of poor George Floyd may not be in vain if it finally fuels a fire that's been burning for awhile and ellicits necessary change. Thanks for sharing your post. I'm glad you found some kindred, passionate spirits.

Hi Patience,
I hear women speaking of together about what is possible, a world in which no one is hungry or harmed, and everyone has a place to live, safe and respected. I am grateful that we have been able to find each other here and can work together.
