“The white race is the cancer of human history.”
– Susan Sontag

The mere fact that she was able to say and write what she wanted speaks to white privilege. What I admire is that she dared to write!

“Benefiting from white privilege is automatic. Defending white privilege is a choice.” – Hitler. from documentary Regarding Susan Sontag

Day 13
Today I am grateful for western medicine, but also for the familia Santos’ concoctions, mami y papi can heal us with onions, garlic, herbs, all kinds of plants, and Vicks.

Today I am grateful for my sacred writing spaces. Today is a reunion.

Today I am grateful for my grandmother Ana Josefa “Fifi”. I wish we had had more time together. For my mother’s mother, my father’s grandmother, and my great grandmothers all women I really wish I had met. I have so many questions.

Today I am grateful for storytellers, the keepers of our secrets, the chosen one’s who are called to document and leave our legacy imprinted on souls. I am grateful to be one of them.

Today I am grateful for confidence… it takes alot of confidence to rise from the debris.
