Hello there!

This is is such a sad story…I feel so deeply for what Jennifer and the other family members must be going through.

I hope it is a wake up call for black people to stop minimizing mental illness among their relatives… saying “he’s tripping” and “she’s tripping” and not taking mental illness SERIOUSLY because a mentally ill person who does not get treatment can be a viable threat to everyone’s well-being.

Our people will cry and wail at the funerals when these tragedies happen but WHO in the family ever called the behavior what it was:
MENTAL ILLNESS.

Let’s allow this tragedy to open the conversation on the denial that permeates in black communities and black families about refusing to acknowledge and call OUT mental and emotional illness in our own family units.

I will pray for the comfort and healing of the family.

Let this be a lesson for all.

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!
Lisa
