I feel GLOSSRAGS is especially fitting for this edition of Black Every Friday. If nothing else, the And Counting tees can spark a conversation. Keep that necessary dialogue going. Pose as a reminder of the senseless acts of violence damaging + taking the lives of our loved ones.
I purchased a shirt from this young sister, Randi Gloss [seen above], last year. I love her dedication to fighting amnesia, which seems to quickly set in after one of our brothers or sisters dies. I can’t lie, I’ve forgotten many of their names because it’s basically daily news. But I do what I can to enlighten, strengthen and inspire- especially for positive causes like this.
The last few days kinda pretty much fucked up my mental. I mean there is no recovery period between these tragedies. There is no shortage of really horrible news. I’m generally a tall ball of joy, but it’s been very difficult to maintain positive thoughts when it pertains to certain topics. I don’t really have much to say on it except that I’m deeply saddened and disgusted. Like everyday. And I wish the families of the departed solace and justice.
