I will MAKE a difference
My heart has been heavy these past days. I am saddened by the depths to which people have sunk in the name of hate. It has always been there, lurking in the shadows, but now it is stepping into the light and I cannot stand by and let that happen!
I have always believed that, despite the color of my skin, I would have stood up for what was right in histories darkest days. I believe that about myself, but in this past year I have felt crippled by the overwhelming vastness of these issues....what can I do?? In my California bubble, where intolerance and bigotry seems the exception not the rule, I live comfortably in my interracial marriage with my beautiful biracial babies. What is wrong with the "rest of the country"? But the more I open my eyes the more I see it all around me.
I will not curl up in a ball. I will not sit by and watch. I will stand up. I will make a difference.
