Cue the Kleenex please…
The anticipation has been building, and once we saw Sterling K. Brown walk away with the Emmy, we sat on the edge of our seats, not so patiently awaiting Season 2 of This Is Us!
This show embodies a multitude of layers and facets of love. It all came by the way of innocence and tragedy – in other words, by God’s design!
This is a show that not only demonstrates that Black Love is not taboo, but it also defies the stereotypes and shifts the trajectory of how we define love and family. This is an emotional story that unfolds, and helps viewers to believe in love again.
The death and birth of an infant, would begin this story of tragedy and triumph of this not so picture perfect American family, as defined by society, but would teach a family that’s not bound by blood, to love without conditions, and equip them with strength for the unexpected.
Regardless of this Melting Pot Family, it does not negate their love and family dynamic, but rather demonstrates love through the lens of those who feel unloved beyond the lines of color, weight and social status. Their differences are actually what help seal their relationships, without contrived limiting beliefs!
This Is Us teaches us forgiveness and acceptance in the deepest sense!
We’re now a couple of episodes into the new season, and still on the edge of our seats, because it’s so riveting, that it pulls you into their story line, and restores your sense of faith and hope in humanity.
This Is Us airs on NBC on Tuesdays at 9/8 CST
