“He knew what he was getting into, but when it happens it hurts anyway.”
Sometimes even narcissists need to think before they speak.
Today’s wise words come from Oliver Wendell Holmes. At times we tend to stick to what we know because the familiar is comfortable, but it is only when we embrace something different that we really see things for what they are.
This past weekend some Neo-Nazis took to the street to protest a racist statue’s removal in Charlottesville, VA. In the midst of the stupidity, several people were injured and 3 lost their lives. Though this is not something new to blacks in America, but it may serve as a wake up call to those who have remained silent on the subject. I urge you to get involved!
Being involved does not always look like a protest or screaming at the top of your lungs. It may be something as subtle as a song, poem or a quote, etc. Whatever way you choose to admonish racism, I encourage you to do so!
