By Equality Rider Ibrahim Vicks
In my journey through life, I have always been led to what I had to do. Never have I asked, “Where am I going?” until recently. Where am I going? So many times have I talked about what I want to do, or how I wanted to go about doing it. But never have I been the one at the wheel. It’s long past the time that I take control of the direction my life is going, time for me to climb out of this box and actively find my destination. I am growing older and I need to claim responsibility for myself, both as a person, and as a member of the many communities I call family. This is my rebirth into the world, and I’m gonna own it.
