They then do a check-in to see how each other is doing. They discuss the importance of incorporating healthier habits into one's lifestyle, as well as suicide in the black community. Emphasizing that suicide is not just a ‘white person’s problem’, and the passing of Stephen Twitch from the Ellen DeGeneres Show in December 2020 brings the issue to the forefront of conversation amongst the black community. Bringing to light the importance of recognizing the issue of suicide and the need to address it, and the need to create a safe environment for those struggling with mental health issues. They also discuss the need to destigmatize mental health within the black community and provide resources for those who are in need.Moment of Inspiration (The Light ): If you want to go fast, go alone.
