Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: The Strength Of A Black Woman
Her intelligence, her strength, her grace, her dignity and her resolve are seemingly otherworldly. In the face of immense pressures and incredible difficulty she’s still able to hold her head high and push on. She does whatever she has to do working long hours at two jobs to support her family. Her faith in God as the creator of all things both beginning and end is her strength and her refuge. His word guides her and gives the support and strength needed to live and succeed for her family. Her husband a soldier died while serving this country.
She raises several children three boys and two girls. They are barely into their young adult and teenage lives when she watches the world murder her babies one after the other. Still she has faith and believes in God’s divine justice. She has to carry on in the face of unspeakable grief as injustice reigns with the murderers of her children going unpunished by the system. Video of their killings at the hands of law enforcement officers only serve as a never-ending open wound. In some she sees her children plead for their lives as they are mercilessly assassinated in a hail of gunfire from service weapons. In others she’s in disbelief as her child is calling out for air in desperate attempts to breathe before being suffocated to death.
The courts shake their heads NO when asked if they will prosecute let alone discipline those that are clearly guilty. Her heart drops even lower if it can be imagined. She feels utterly empty and her eyes darken as her body trembles involuntarily with great force. She struggles to take a sip of water from a glass that shatters in her hand.
