Although the struggle continues for our BIPOC community, we can find energy in connecting. Whenever we find rest, there is time to reflect, rejoice and rejuvenate. In that, is the opportunity to nourish our souls and replenish our spirit.

Two men take a reprieve from a demonstration. The rest of the crowd stands at attention, shielding them as they manage to share a moment of lightness and laughter. Still, the gravity of the situation does not leave them untouched. The man in the foreground tips his head back to rest with some heaviness, and his company leans his weight forward. This transient reprieve is but a much-needed moment of levity and unity in a tireless fight.
