I RECOGNIZE AND AM TRYING TO BETTER UNDERSTAND...

  1. My privilege
    I'm not sure I can say it better, more eloquently, or more completely than what has already been said. But I don't want to leave it unsaid either. I have experienced and benefited from privilege on many levels and in a variety of ways.
  2. My ignorance
    You all have expanded, broadened, and enlightened my thinking. And I still have so much to learn. So many lists and articles 💾 to read and digest.
  3. My discomfort
    Discomfort with how very badly we are doing as a country. Discomfort with the tremendous amount of pain that happens as a result. And discomfort with doing the wrong thing, with saying the wrong thing, with being the person to start or have an uncomfortable conversation. HOWEVER, the reality and repercussions of inequality outweigh my personal discomfort by magnitudes, and so I have to speak up.

  5. I am learning so much from all of you. Thank you. ❤️
