You Have to be Prepared to Die Before You Can Begin to Live

Ten years ago, the author became fixated on a photograph captured in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963. It depicted a German shepherd aggressively lunging at a Black teenager named Walter Gadsden, who was restrained by a white police officer.
This powerful image, spanning three columns on the front page of the New York Times, left a profound impact on the author. Growing up on an Iowa farm, the author later fell in love with Sonya Castex, a Black woman from inner-city Houston. Their children, identifying as Black, further connected the author to the realities of racial injustice.
The Birmingham photo encapsulated the brutality inflicted by white people upon Blacks, juxtaposed with the dignified response of Black individuals.
In 2020, the tragic death of George Floyd, a Black man from Houston, at the hands of Officer Derek Chauvin, reignited discussions on racial violence.
Sonya's family, unlike others, did not shield their children from the coverage, leading the twins, George Floyd and Harper, to witness the tragedy on CNN, prompting difficult questions about systemic racism and self-identity.
