For the Families

I’d like to first start by saying how deeply sorry I am for your loss, which no matter how many times you’ve heard that cliché line, I hope you will accept as genuine truth.

It’s true! There are many people like myself, even some whom you may have never meet, who think about your pain and wish that they could do something about it. They may even stop by with flowers and say a few kind words, but if they don’t know your pain, if they haven’t experienced it, then they can only imagine what they think you are going through. It is that fraction of the pain they imagine you’re feeling that has moved them to action. Once they have reached their highest capacity to understand your grief, you can expect that to be the extent of their dedication to your fight for justice. It will be hard to not feel abandoned by those who’ve seen your pain and empathized with you for only a moment. You’ll wonder where they are or why they haven’t called or shown up after a while. That is only a distraction. You’ve got to work with those who will work with you for as long as they’ll work with you.

Know that there will never be anyone more committed to the advocacy work of your loved one than you.

Maybe your problem is that you’ve subconsciously been waiting for a spokesperson or someone to carry this load for you. Starting a foundation makes the loss all too real and maybe you don’t feel ready to move on. That’s okay.

You don’t have to get over the death of your love one, you only need to find ways to live with it.

There may not be a guide to tell us how to navigate this word after such great loss, but we do have each other as a resource while we fight for justice on their behalf. People will always be our greatest asset. No one is disposable and now more than ever we need to join together.

Mamie Till Mobley, a woman who dedicated her life to seeking the justice of her only son, stood in solidarity with others because she knew their pain and also understood that justice should ensue. After Emmett was murdered, she said, “What happens to any of us, anywhere in the world, had better be the business of us all.”

A task that at that time, seemed unreasonable. Even today, with our access to technology, this charge can feel like an overwhelming task. Let’s be honest, with all of the violence we see in our community and how it’s taken so many we’ve known and loved, we deserve gold stars just for waking up and getting out of the bed each morning.

Yes, it is challenging to live, to do more than just stay alive, for a Black person in America. Our mere existence, waking up, getting out of bed and going about our day, is a revolutionary act.

What Mamie came to realize, is that unless we combine our resources we won’t get very far. We’ll always keep showing up in life a day late and a dollar short.

With today’s innovative engineering, walking through life alone trying to figure it all out by yourself, is a choice. Now more than ever we have access to more information and tools than in past generations.

As long as we have the will to do more than just survive and access to likeminded people we will always have a chance at freedom and justice.

I know none of us asked to be thrown into our circumstances, so that means you may not know where to begin building a reliable, trustworthy network or how to research and sift through information to help you seek justice or create a memorial foundation. If you’ve made the choice to honor your loved ones legacy, you’ve come to the right place.

Myself and partnering families have created a circle bonded by the blood of our murdered relatives. We are here to give you love and support.

Below are helpful resources for coping with grief, starting and maintaining a successful memorial foundation, charity fundraising, tech tools I use for marketing and branding with our partner families and a link to the We C.A.R.E. Marketplace where you can search our directory of COMMITTED ADVOCATES, find more RESOURCES and hire or consult with out vetted EXPERTS related to your needs. If you are looking for a specific service that has not been posted in the marketplace, ask for referrals from our other families in the community forum.

I know you will have more questions, so please contact me at amberly@mamietillmobley.com.

In the words of Fannie Lou Hamer, “Nobody’s free until everybody is free” and no one has justice until everybody has justice.

Now let’s get on with the business of justice!
