Rest in power and peace Chadwick Boseman. Goes without saying that he was a cultural icon, inspiration and truly resilient and courageous soul. This was one of many beautiful quotes he shared with the world,
“Fearlessness means taking the first step, even if you don’t know where it will take you. It means being driven by a higher purpose, rather than by applause. It means knowing that you reveal your character when you stand apart, more than when you stand with the crowd.”
Have a productive week.
