I have a grand daughter, that’s bold, brash and full of fire, talented  and speaks her mind, 99% of the time respectfully. She’s 12 going on 20 but I try to let her shine and be who she came here to be. You see we all came here to be something special, to touch someone, to change something for the better of all.
A lot of our fires were put out long ago, by someone or something, never to be rekindled. I see a lot of Sha’carri in my granddaughter, bold, brash, kind and full of fire, I see that in thousands of other young girls as well trying to find their place in this world!  So don’t put out Sha’carri’s fire, LET HER RUN!
I lost my mother in 2020, imangine going from talking to someone every day, to not hearing their voice or seeing their physical body again. It is an experience that many will have to endure, but some may not take well. I didn’t!!! I wanted to go with her. I  fell into such a depression that I thought on some days I was going to meet her.
If it were not for the love I have for my children, grands, husband and sibling and love they have for me, I wouldn’t  have made it this far.
It’s still daunting at times but more bearable with all the love and  support I have. Now let’s look at Sha’carri Richardson. I’ve been following, her and the many young track and field stars for years, her since college.
I ran track in high school and have loved the sport for years. Shaccarie is down to earth and real meaning, she’s not afraid to speak her mind and stand up for what she believes in. Every time she’s told she can’t do something amazing she proves them wrong. She really stole my heart when she rooted for fellow athletic Aleia Hobbs when she got reinstated for a false start in the 100. That was awesome!!! She also apologized and made no excuses. How many people do we see  that in? 

 If I’m not mistaken Sha’carri found out her mom was deceased from a reporter. I couldn’t imagine how devastating that was, and on top of that she has the weigh of the whole world depending on her to run and win the 100 in Tokyo. I wouldn’t blame her for hitting a blunt. A lot of people would not have made it that far.

When I smoked Canabis in the 70’s and I smoked a lot,  all I wanted to do was chill, and it gave me the munchies. I really smoked a lot after I broke my leg playing softball it helped with the pain emotionally and physically. I moved around like a slouth! One of the reasons I left it alone. So to say it was performance enhancing I don’t think so, I was a test subject for 20 plus years .
I’m 64, she’s 21 no way I had my life together at that age back then.  Sha’carri knew she could be tested at any time, she also knew she could be banned, but the pain and pressure was so much she chose to relieve it the best way she knew how. I know a guniune person when I see them, she is a good person, that made a small mistake and is paying a huge price.

Let her run her signature race the 100 in Tokyo! Stop testing these athletes for cannabis, it’s legal in most states and a recreational herb, to my knowledge no other sport test for it. This is a plea from a mother, a grandmother, and a lover of track and field, but mostly a human that could have been a Titan like Sha’carri ❤️ It’s  her time!!! Let her burn up that track� Rockin Robin!!!
