I usually stay mum, but I will say all of this because sitting quiet is not an option anymore.
SILENCE = BETRAYAL in the world we’re living in right now that should be way more progressive than it’s shown to be as of late.
Don’t get it twisted, this isn’t a POLITICAL POST. This is a post about LOVE vs. HATE.
I am into fitness and into training and into travel and into social media. Social media is also an outlet for me to share my journey with motherhood as a responsibility I’ve been so blessed to experience. It also doesn’t mean I have to pick any sides, other than to stand up for what’s right. We’ve come too far to go this far backwards [in the past however many years this shenanigans has gone on.]
What the heck is going on in our world? Since when did we think it was okay to go backwards and begin to protest against a statue coming down that is a part of our history and do so using HATE? Peaceful protest doesn’t mean carrying torches and shouting ‘supremacy’ over other races. This is 2017! Part of learning from history, is learning to MOVE ON and BE BETTER. It’s also one thing to silently protest, but another to go into any situation with the intent of HURTING OTHERS.
Hatred any race against any race, creed, ethnicity, gender, ANYTHING makes NO SENSE.
As a girl who grew up being from two nations, two who were at odds with each other at one point in history, I know all too well the struggle of growing up in America with such ignorance getting all up in my business.
NONE of us have any right to HATE based solely on someone’s skin color or ethnic background and the fact that this type of behavior is being cultivated and tolerated now even moreso makes my heart ache. We can’t live in bubbles and pretend that a huge problem isn’t growing around us.
I’ll never teach my daughter anything other than to LOVE everyone around her, to LEARN of their differences for understanding & not for resistance, and also to STANDUP for equal rights for every one no matter who or what they are … we have to teach our kids that the hate they’re seeing all around them from any angle is UNACCEPTABLE.
My little girl has no idea what “different” means. She’s the definition of “melting pot” in one little 17 lb body waiting to smile and play at the blink of an eye. We will never allow her to be robbed of her rights and safety as a human being living in a country who fought so hard for her freedom. HATE is TAUGHT, and it’s our duty in this world to teach our children SO MUCH MORE.
The world needs love ❤️ right now. Our ENERGY should be FUNNELED there.
I’ve been so sad since those events this weekend for my little one knowing I’ve got to teach her even more so the truth of the gospel to combat the evil in the world.
We can be better and teach our kids better.
We should be unsilenced and battle using His truths.
We should use healthy avenues to handle our feelings like working out, taking care of ourselves, and going straight to His word.
We can’t fight evil with more evil.
We should focus on Jesus.
You can’t reason with what makes no sense …
