The Thing About My Blog And Social Justice

This blog has a heavy social justice element to it. As a person who feels deeply and cares about what’s going on around the world I want to post about it show support and awareness. Be warned I come from a center-left perspective and if what I post is too much then you have my blessing to unfollow. No hard feelings. Right now the world is in need of advocates for people who want to have rights and resources to make their lives better and I am answering that call. Some posts will have comments turned off because I don’t want any conflict between people. Thanks for your understanding and interest in what I have to say.

George Floyd – Rest In Power

Good sir you died way too young. Your life should have not ended this way. All you wanted to do is breathe and live the rest of your life and that was taken from you. Rest in power and may justice be served in your case and in the cases of others who have died in the same way.

Quote Of The Day

“There is nothing more tragic than to sleep through a revolution. One of the great liabilities of history is that all too many people find themselves standing amid a great period of social change, and yet they fail to achieve the new attitudes, the new thought patterns, the new mental outlooks that the new situation demands. So many people fail to remain awake through great revolutions.” – Martin Luther King addressing the Methodist Student Movement in 1964
