Of the more than 10,000 summits of Everest that have been completed, only six climbers have been Black, and among them, only one has been an American.

Do you know how strong gale force winds are? They're the ones that break down trees and tear down light poles. For us that live close to the tropics, gale force winds are actually pretty common whenever there's a big storm or a hurricane is close by.

This isn't a new article, it's from a couple of years ago, but the message is, of course, still relevant. It's a situation we are working hard to make a dent in. Our communities deserve better.
