There is going to be a lot of chatter about the new viral variants. I thought would explain to people the way I think about this. This is certainly not a time for panic. As I suggested a few days ago the most important thing we can do is stop the virus from spreading.
Ya'll, my 1st ever full-time fellow on the team just got into an MD/PhD program!!! She joined the team when I was *just* finding my own way, let alone the way to guide another, yet trusted the process.

I really feel a testimony coming; let me get off this app and call my grandma so we can talk about God greatness together. Generations upon generations of holding the burden on our shoulders and FINALLY... Whew! I love this for us. I truly do.
Y’all a Black woman is about to be sworn in as the Vice President of the US, & my heart is so full.

In this week’s #niecetoobomb news: Kenni Bug starts back to school 2 days/weeks. Her school district (with insight via my mom who is employed under the superintendent) has a plan her virologist auntie could get with.
Normalcy will take time, but planning that will get us there. https://t.co/dKeybp1dXD
Tomorrow Monday 1/18 at 11:00am ET, NAN will be streaming the MLK virtual awards. The 2021 honorees are Stacey Abrams, Dr. Anthony Fauci, LaTosha Brown, Sindy Benavides, Millicent Gorham, Sir Hilary Beckles & Cavanaugh Bell! Watch at https://t.co/ELPERF70Bf or NAN's FB.
I am thus threading a few events that I will be watching in the background.
The first of which is organized by someone I hold dear to my heart: The @UMich “2021 MLK Keynote Memorial Lecture” @ 10am EST
With that, MLK Day, has always been the one day I refused to work but to be of service. I generally attend an event or two abd volunteer my heart to a mission for the people. Last year & this one, that looks diff as I reconcile with science as the service.
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” x Dr. MLK, Jr.
... hits a little diff today as the over the past year we’ve all been shifted from comfort into challenge.
This was expected.
For that reason, I have been working with my therapist on the expected grief & failure I will feel in the Fall when deaths rates in communities of color are 5-10X.
Buckle up, buttercup.
