Black Lives Matter: How You Can Help Bring Change

 I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

I created this website to inform others how they can live a healthier life for a healthier future, and this applies to everything physical and mental.

I believe that creating this post is my way of staying true to my word and taking action in the fight against racism as doing so will help carve a path for future generations to a healthier future for everyone, where people won’t be judged for the color of their skin, but for the content of their character.

During times like this, it’s important to not let fear, anger, and hatred consume us entirely, but we should still be feeling it; as we can shift that energy to do something about it.

Today, I will be providing various sources/methods in which you can become involved in the fight against racism and support the Black Lives Matter movement.

Now is the time to take action.

Now is the time to speak up.

Now is the time to fight for what is right.

Now is the time to bring justice to the wrongful deaths of countless innocent lives across America.

I may not be black, but I will fight for you. #blacklivesmatter
