Remember to take care of yourself, eat healthy, get outside and feel your feet on the Earth. Engage in activities that bring you peace. Please, please be compassionate toward yourself and others right now. We are in desperate need of some extra love while our Earth is in pain.
I realize that all of this coming from the mouth of a white woman may seem like a conceited attempt at absolving white guilt. I promise you, I am not here asking forgiveness for the actions of my ancestors, or even the mistakes I may have made in the past. I am here as a friend, a sister, an auntie, an artist, and a woman to take a stance. And that stance is this: I propose we wake up to the injustices that are constantly causing people to feel less than worthy.
