Guess Who’s Back?!

It’s been over a month since I’ve posted a blog post. I could give you a million reasons why but honestly, I just didn’t feel like writing. Okay, I did but I didn’t know how to put into words what I was feeling. Cue the steroid shot…

Part of what makes me who I am is that as I’ve gotten older. I’m more prone to say exactly what’s on my mind. As a friend put it when talking about my blog. I’m often unfiltered. There are some things I don’t disclose but for the most part, what you see is what you get. I haven’t been blogging because I felt that what I had to say might not be ‘relevant’ or ‘important’. That people would think I was a self-righteous ranter. Whatever. I don’t care. 

Here’s the deal – I’m very concerned about the society we live in. I’m concerned that we have a ‘leader’ who spends more time tweeting than a 16 year old girl. I’m concerned that Christians have forgotten what it actually means to be a Christian – you know – like JESUS – who loved the person inspite of their sins because you know, we all sin. I’m concerned that people who I love and respect are seen as terrorists and thugs by people who don’t want to have conversations with them. I’m concerned that people care more about a wall than affordable healthcare and quality public school education for ALL children. I’m concerned that all of a sudden drug use is an epidemic but no one cared when it was RAVAGING and DESTROYING Black communities. I’m concerned that I have to explain to my children that at some point, their brilliance isn’t going to matter to someone because of the color of their skin. I’m concerned because mental health issues are still a taboo and often a joke in this country. 

Look – call me what you want. But the truth is, I can put a name to a face for every person we as a country seem to be turning our back on. A refugee, an illegal immigrant, a person on welfare, a drug addict, a thug, and on and on and on. And you know what – maybe that’s why I’m so concerned. Perspective is a mighty strong thing. 

Until next time…
