It’s a tough time, and just when you feel like things are looking up, something so gut-wrenching happens that it makes you question everything.
The recent protests in our country have been a wake-up call.
Will Smith recently said, “Racism isn’t getting worse. It’s just getting filmed.”
Sadly, he is right.
Maybe this is when we all come together as a nation to put an end to this injustice that has plagued our country for so long.
If you don’t know where to start darlings, here’s where I started, by educating myself on the current issues.
In order to be fully aware of a situation and then support it, it’s necessary that you educate yourself about what’s really going on.
Follow people who are giving the right information and absorb it.
Here are the accounts I’m following:
- Black Lives Matter
- Rachel Cargle
- Grace F Victory
- The Daily Show
- Mireille C Harper
- Black and Embodied
And once you’re armed with information, use it to create a dialogue.
Also, be sure to sign the on-going petitions
- Justice for George Floyd Petition
- Justice for Breonna Taylor Petition
- Justice for Ahmaud Arbery
- Additional Black Lives Matter petitions to sign
I hope and pray that together we can change the view of the world, and create a place where a person’s color doesn’t decide their crime.
Stay Safe Darlings!
