Black Lives Matter.

I have felt for the last two weeks how important it was to say (and type) these words, but also to be quiet, to listen, to learn.

Yesterday I came across this quote from Latasha Morrison and it said everything I needed to hear. I share it here with you to hope it will resonate with you, too.

“In the midst of everything that is going on in our country right now, we want to remind our white brothers and sisters to press pause. We want to remind you to not jump right into action and “fix it” mode. Learn to be still and listen and learn. Do not give into the temptation and ingrained conditioning to “lead.” This does not mean take no actions––this means change the place from which you are taking those actions. Work from a posture of awareness and humility, always being open and flexible to change your process as you learn from Black people.”
