“Don’t be afraid to fail. Be afraid not to try.” I learned this week that I am an honoree in the Impact category of Blogher’s Voices of the Year. I received this honor for the essay I wrote for the Washington Post on talking to my then four-year old about police. I’ve mentioned this great news everywhere else on my social media accounts, but I know so many who read this blog only read this blog to know what’s happening with me so I thought it write it here, too. Happy Friday. Love, Jessica ❤︎.
