I, like a jackass, went back on Facebook today only to find the first item in my news feed are that police officers have been gunned down in Baton Rouge. This shooting is in retaliation for the young man killed on July 5, at the hands of Baton Rouge police officers.
I am a writer.
I have an audience.
I have a voice that is heard.
This is ugly.
This is an ugly time in our country as we experience a very different and difficult growing pain. It is not going away because we updated our social media posting. It is not going away with one phone call to our Senators. It. Is. Not. Going. Away.
I want to show you something beautiful. I am not showing you this to throw the rock and hide my hand, but to show you that there is someting out there so pure and beautiful, that it is magical. Please, watch this clip and enjoy the beautiful. Don’t worry, the ugly will still be there when you finish, but for just two minutes, look and see this story in movement.
At some point, we all have to stand in the light, and be seen as we are. Don’t cave into the ugly commentary.
Be good to each other.
