I rarely post about this election. In fact, I find it painful to think about most of the time. I’ve reached a point where the realities seem surreal, where the hate surfacing and being projected upon innocent people and communities makes me feel as we’ve fallen back decades as a nation. Suddenly, I am faced with undeniable truths—that we, as humans, never learn and become enemies of our own destinies, coerced so easily to fear for the sake of someone’s greedy agenda.
I am blessed to have been given a life filled with diversity—of experiences, friends and loves. I learn from children everyday who are innocent enough to want to change the world. Let them live in a world where they will be given the chance. Let us live in a world where people who are struggling as much as we are, many even more so, are given open doors to our hearts and our homes.
We are at a turning point this November. Make it a turning point, not a tipping point. Step forward. Vote and vote wisely. Use both wisdom and common sense. Evil fueled by fear can win and will win without a collective effort to decide otherwise.
