I don’t often know what to say when it comes to matters that make the world uncomfortable. But, I do know what I feel and believe. I believe that every person, regardless of class, race, or age deserves to be heard, respected, and loved. That’s all I know. People who suppress that belief with violence, oppression, hate, fear, and policy are wrong.
Yes, all lives matter – of course they do. But, I don’t think there’s any doubt that black lives are the ones that need the spotlight and have needed the spotlight for many, many years.
There needs to be positive change in our world. I hope the events these last few days will finally spark it because, otherwise, how many deaths will it take?
