It’s what I do, what folks say I’m good at, but what happens when words are not enough That happens when patience and acceptance can no longer excuse reprehensible behaviour? When words fall upon deaf ears and ignorance changes to become a wilful intent to deny the truth of the situation, then all of the words a person may use in education, negotiation, or reconciliation are as a whisper against a storm.
Then the time for words ends and the time for deeds arrives. The only way to be heard over the storm is to become a storm. The only way the willfully ignorant can be made to acknowledge truth is by being louder than the fingers they put over their eyes and ears, becoming the embodiment of your truth and rising with the storm of stand for that which is Right for all and not just for yourself.
The world is rocked and burning right now. As I write these words global protests have taken over from global pandemic. What could be more harmful to our species than the Covid-19 virus? Well that's not hard to say, because it’s the same thing we have been battling against for generations. Racism.
We all have thoughts and perspectives and opinions. Its simply part of the human condition as a socialized species. So In the interest of insight, this is where I will share my perspective and opinions.
