So many shares about the hatred and how angry we all are. I feel you. It hurts to know our nation is in this place at this time. We all hoped that we'd be further by now. It's been years since Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream. I know many of us hold that dream dear in our hearts and share with our families and children the love we wish to give.
Instead, our boys watched "The Hate You Give" a documentary that stirred us all. We have always spoken to them about white privilege and the fact that they need to respect and love others and uplift because they are male and white and will have it by birth.
It would be so wonderful to give more love and we all have the capacity to do that. We have that power.
But as we turn away from the hatred, I hope that you will take some reassurance in the fact that you feel disgust, hurt, angry, confused, scared and a myriad of other miserable feelings. That is what reminds us that we care, that we can act, that we are human and that love will win.
I am thankful for that pain. Thank God I feel it. Not feeling it would be much, much worse. Love your neighbor, explore the reasons why people feel the need to oppress and why people who are oppressed need us to amplify their voice and our own. Love you, LeeAnn
