In a time where we have more reasons to be separate, distant and at odd with one another, I appreciate those who choose to come close. When it’s muddy, scary, exhausting, vulnerable, costly (it gets costly y’all) and just plain tiring. Those who show up with their questions, apologies, broken hearts, guilt, anger, shame, tension and such loaded history; YOU, you are the heroes of our time. Race stuff is hard! To make it more intimidating we’ve tried in the past and done it wrong. No one likes to do things they’re not good at, so I get the hesitation. It’s easier to wait for the next generation, for the next city, for the next leader. But what if we’re next?! What if this time was precisely set for us to lean in, rise up and see something we’ve never seen?
I challenge you join, be humble, be gracious, be patient, be gentle, be kind, be courageous, be rooted, be unafraid to be wrong and be a friend who chooses to cross over comfort over and over again in order to connect. It’ll be US We will be the ones to see something we’ve never seen! We will go places we’ve never been. We will help wounds that have never been healed. We WILL Together reconciliation love friendship humily learning conversation tears laughs journey peace love heal shelovez together
