Happy Monday! I hope everyone finds themselves well.
2020 has been quite the year so far. Between the pandemic and the continued struggle for racial equality, it feels like the world is on fire and change is in the air.
Last week, I heard an incredible song that I found deeply meaningful and touching. The song reminded me of my early days when I used to protest, and what hopes we had for a better world.
This got me to thinking about how we are still protesting many of the same issues, as well as bringing up a sadness that we have not come as far as we need.
But I have also seen many positive changes in my life.
It lifts my heart that the generations that have come after me continue the march for a more just world. They are able to do so in part because they have rights and opportunities that I did not have growing up that I helped fight for, just as I was able to do so because of the generations before me.
May we create a better world where all people are not only treated equally and fairly, but are also able to prosper and thrive.
The time is now.
We have all waited too long.
