Black Lives Matter

In June, I paused from posting on my blog or social media to take time to reflect, educate myself further, and have conversations with friends, family, and people in my in-person community. We've come to a turning point of heightened awareness in our greater community of the systemic oppression that faces Black people every day in America.

I don't consider human rights to be a political matter. And I stand with the Black community. Black lives matter. I will do what I can to be the change.

Here is a list of some resources and organizations that I have found helpful in recent weeks.

    Thank You SO Much! I enjoy your blog, I learn a lot from it, but I really appreciate your courage. And your humanity. (I'm concerned that you'll not be universally acclaimed for it.)

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
