Arame Richardson, who has served as an educator in the Baltimore City Public School System since 2009, as well as the Harford County School System from 2016-2018, has completed her new book, "The Color of Persistence": a powerful and moving tale of the adversities faced by those in America who are not a part of the favored few that life caters to.
"I guess it's safe to say that as kids growing up, we never really understood what the concept of adulthood entailed," writes Richardson. "Naive and inquisitive, especially for those of us who came from average or poor families, becoming an adult appeared to be our only path to freedom. Now that we have come of age, it has become crystal clear that those were all illusions. Life isn't a bed of roses, and that's just the way it is.
"The only part we can play in this game called life is how we react to life's challenges. You want happiness? Create your happiness. You want peace? Make peace with yourself. You're faced with obstacles and challenges on your path to achieving your goal? Face them."
