Reading Breathe: A Letter to My Sons by @imaniperry is like getting the biggest, longest mom-hug ever. 🥺💜
The kind of hug that you leave feeling all of the love, care, joy and courage to live well that you can possibly receive.
Perry’s love for her sons, as a Black mother of Black children in America today, is so strong that I and every reader can feel and appreciate it.
It’s a book I’ll have to read again and again to remind myself of its essential truth:
Our grace – “the good that is in you, regardless of what happens” – is bigger than the trauma of a violent, racist and patriarchal society.
Our grace is how we survive and thrive. That’s something to never take for granted.
