Today as I sit down to write this blog, I am finding difficulty in the words. I want to write about racism and how it is wrong and yet I feel wholly ill-equipped. I want to write about how we need to remember our connection to each other and just love and take care of each other but that feels insensitive and while my intentions would be in the right place, being insensitive to long standing suffering is not how I want to be.
The only thing that I can say today is that #BlackLivesMatter and that I will educate myself so that I can take a more informed stance against racism and be more aware of my own privilege.
For anyone who also wants to educate themselves so they can take a more informed stance against racism, this link has a ton of information.
