Rebecca-Jaynn was telling me how it is precious to know how to read so we can learn more each day. So she gave me her speech about the benefits of reading MLK biography, and gave her version of the story. This made me smile so much and was glad that she is from the new generation that don't have this automatic belief that you couldn't be a president because your black. A new example has been set for all black children in the world living in a "white" country, that a black man is a powerful man which, my friends and I never saw so never believe in it growing up. Thank you #barackobama . She mistaken #MLK for a #President , which to me is more than that, he is a KING 👑 lmao (😊😂that's a good one) and I will never tell her until she reads more and more and grow her own knowledge. I'm so proud of her and her reading skills, knowing one year ago she couldn't even speak English. #ForceFrancaise#MaliPuissanci#Blackchildren
This is exactlt what we need instead of dividing the country more than it is. I've had enough of this far left and far right "we're the better race" bullshit. - E

#MLK said it best when he said:
"We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people."
Racism & bigotry does not merely exist on the faces of the terrorists marching in #charlottesville
We all know people who have said or done something that is wrong while we remained silent or tried to justify it because of the other person's background, age or by saying "well they aren't THAT racist" Enough is Enough. Start with you. Let your voice be the one that changes the people around you. Start today. Be a truth teller. Speak truth to power. Be a freedom fighter. Fight the good fight. I love you.
'#Charlottesville , #America and #MLK .' Such a painful, yet potential-ful, time in our nation and world. What we do now matters. I've decided to help educate and lead informative, inspiring, equipping conversations. Honored to join Kaore Bonell and Kathleen Wilhoite for their latest 'Suck the Joy' podcast. I'd love it if you'd listen. Link in bio.
A verdade é que quem tem um sobrinho tem uma fortuna. Uma fortuna contraditória, pois dela nada nos pertence, nem mesmo nosso coração. Porque o amor que se sente por um sobrinho ultrapassa fronteiras e faz com que os momentos passados ao seu lado sejam uma delícia.
Uma delícia estressante por vezes, mas de um sabor incomparável sempre. O tempo com o um sobrinho só traz benefícios, pois o fato de não passar o tempo todo com eles faz com que o tempo que passe seja dedicado a fazê-los se sentirem reis, brincando sem parar e reinventando o mundo.
Right now it's easy to stand up on your soap box & tell others how wrong racism, society, gender bias, violence, fear, & poor political leadership is. MLK jr is remembered for being loved & leading a love, but he was not always loved or liked by all. He stood up for love & peace & equality while others took roads of hatred & violence. He asked of us not to be silent bystanders, but to also not stoop to their level of hate. So when the FB & Instagram posts die down, when the news goes back to something stupid like which celebrity couple is breaking up or how to lose 10 lbs in a day, remember today. Remember that there are still people in your community, state, country, & all over the world being beaten down, treated as less than a human being, turned away for race, religion, gender, & everything other way people try to spread hate for what they aren't a part of or is unknown to them. Remember it's always the right time to do the right thing.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. #MLK
These photos were taken Aug 16, 2017 at a vigil for #HeatherHeyer & #Charlottesville , in my small, rural hometown of Washington, NC. Organized by our local #Indivisible group, this was a non partisan gathering in unity against hate, racism, Nazis, white supremacy, and domestic terrorism. There was love and prayer and singing and inspiration. There was no violence; we gathered legally and peacefully. No one carried assault rifles or weapons.
But make no mistake, we will not be silent.
"The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people, but the silence over that by the good people." (More MLK)
Times are not normal.
If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.
As for my personal stance on the current state of our nation, let me be crystal clear: do not mistake my lack of posts for me not doing what I can to fight the radical, indefensible attitudes and actions of the current White House administration. #YallMeansAll#BlackLivesMatter#Resist#Persist#NoJusticeNoPeace#WeAreNotThis#NoHateInMyState#NorthCarolina
