Rise Up

Now, more than ever, we need to come together and stand as one people and speak as one voice for the sake of one another. This world has always been and will always be a dangerous and treacherous place. But that is not all that dwells here. Kindness, care, positivity, hope, faith, mindfulness, respect, celebration, diversity, goodness, light, and love dwell here too. And it is absolutely imperative that we go forth together, in, with, and of love. We must stand against senseless violence and hatred.

In the last month, 3 young men have been convicted of assulting a mentally disabled boy and face life in prison meanwhile a young man raped an unconscious woman and is tapped on the wrist with a 6 month sentence, a man murdered a woman after her performance doing what she loved, and another man massacred a group of people who were simply living their lives.

These kinds of injustice can not be tolerated any longer. We need to stand against and rise above fear, hatred, senseless violence, judgment, and cruelty. We have to do something. We have to care. We have to speak up and we have to love one another. There can no longer be an acceptable place for judgment and cruelty. Hold your loved ones close and live your life, breath by breath, with love. Let us rise up and hold hands as we walk through this life together.

Love and light to all the victims in Orlando and I continue to stand whole-heartedly with the LGBTQ community.
