Last month I went to my first veteran meet up after 2yrs of my Army BFF telling me to go. I should've listened to her WAY sooner. Fellow Veterans, STOP hesitating & making excuses. Your veteran family is awaiting you with open arms!!! Not only am I thankful enough to have this new family, but they've encouraged me to do something tonight that I wouldn't have imagined doing💞🇺🇸💞#thankful#therapy#therapythursdays
Sending love out to you and this beautiful country of ours. Let's just keep embracing the good people all around us of all kinds. That's what America is all about. The journey may be hard sometimes but the primary goal is the same 🙏 #weareallamerica#loveheals#landofthebrave
✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿I posted this back in February and was told I was "too emotional." I was "hysterical." I just needed to "let it go." I needed to "get over it, trump won." I was told to "stick to the yoga posts." I was told that I was "freaking out about nothing." 😡💔😤We cannot move backwards. It's insulting to the millions of Americans who've already lost their lives to this fight. There's no such thing as the alt-left. We cannot let hate win. We cannot sit idly by while evil blooms. Not on our watch. If you think I'm "being too liberal," if you think "this doesn't really impact me," check your priveledge and realize that this goes beyond political party. White supremacy has no home here. It's up to each and every one of us to ensure that David fucking Duke doesn't win. Everyone's skin is different, not their bones, not their brains, not their soul. And if you don't agree, 👋🖕👋 #staywoke#resist#hystericalfemale#landofthebrave#stepup#wakeup#thisisnotnormal#dumptrump#nazisympathizershavenoplaceinpolitics
This is my family. This is diversity. This is the melting pot. This is the beauty of learning to love beyond someone's skin. My mother, my father, my brothers, my aunts, uncles, cousins, thank you for teaching me what it means to except wonderful people no matter what race or sexual orientation. This is what America should look like. This is what it claims to be, but actions speak louder than words. I will remain optimistic that one day, we will put an end to repeating brutal history. One day, people won't assume that a Hispanic mother of a light skinned redhead is just the nanny. That the light skinned redhead could actually be related to the gorgeous half Puerto Rican, half Jamaican little girls running around the park. The stunning African, Irish, German can be related to the Puerto Rican, Irish, German. What seems like an abnormal family to some, will be normalcy for all. One day, I won't have to fear for the lives of my relatives, just because their skin is a different shade than mine.
I'm sad today.
Sad for humanity.
Sad for this great bread basket nation.
Sad for the absence of accountability.
Sad for my future children - that this kind of hate exists in the world.
Sad that our faithless, fearful leaders stoke, promote, and manipulate hate like this like cancer to innocent life.
I hate hate.
I am sad that I hate anything. --- I am reposting the exact thing I posted after the Pulse shootings, because it's exactly how I feel about what is happening in Charlottesville, right now. --- "Let us turn our thoughts today
To Martin Luther King
And recognize that there are ties between us,
All men and women living on the Earth.
Ties of hope and love,
Sister and brotherhood,
That we are bound together
In our desire to see the world
Become a place in which our children
Can grow free and strong.
We are bound together by the task
That stands before us
And the road that lies ahead.
We are bound and we are bound." - James Taylor, 'Shed A Little Light' (https://youtu.be/sM7j1kf46wo)
