With all of the sadness and negativity going on in the world lately we think it is absolutely important to share some positives and empowerment. We stumbled on to this video recently that premiered on the Queen Latifah show a few months ago. It contains three young ladies performing a spoken world piece called “Somewhere In America” . This poem was beautiful and powerful, though after digging deeper I found some really concerning and even hateful comments on the web in regards to this video. Now… I know it is the internet and we can’t stop people from having an opinion, but I was sure that I would see more positives than negatives. Needless to say I was extremely shocked, and couldn’t understand many of the responses I was reading. I’ll leave this video here below and you share your thoughts with us. What did you think about the message these young ladies were trying to send?
