Thoughts after Charlottesville

This is very hard to watch. (I suggest an “R” rating and that it not be shown to children.) But if you want to really understand the face of racism and white supremacy, please watch – to the very end.

This is raw and it is real and it is shocking. This is what is happening in the United States. We – every single person – have the duty to stand against this hatred.

Vice News — Charlottesville: Race and Terror

If you tend to surround yourself with people that are like you, please reach out to someone who is different than you and get to know them.

If you are a parent, please teach your children what kind of violence can come from such hatred.

If you are a politician, please reach across the aisle and work together.

If you are human, please do everything in your power to save common decency and help return peace and civility to the world.
