Day One or One Day?

This one is quick and straight to the point.

I don’t even know where to begin. What the $*&% is going on? Is this really happening?

Recent events and commentary about Charlottesville has us all thinking and contemplating our next move. Well, apparently people are “making America great again.” Really? #smdh

Well if anyone cares, America was great before all this “ish” started going down – like about a year or so ago—now enters the current president. A couple of things come to mind when I think about all that has transpired over the last couple of months and possible next moves:

  1. Since we were bamboozled last November, perhaps we should think about another voting system: maybe a fingerprint– the middle finger sounds about right.
  2. We need to continue to teach children to understand and accept differences early on. But they also need to understand race and racism. There’s a difference.
  3. Do your own research when it comes to politics, controversy, and whatever else. And then pass truth on because everyone loves false truths.
  4. The media is tricky – watch what you watch and hear – everything is up for discussion these days but it may not be what it’s cracked up to be.
  5. Stop living up to stereotypes that you or others have created. Do the opposite of what the “label” reads.
  6. Continue to pull people’s card when they say or do something that makes you uncomfortable. And I don’t only mean from a black and white standpoint – but all standpoints.
  7. No need to talk in code. Tell what’s really going on even if you offend people.
  8. Continue to hold politicians accountable. Write a letter, send an email, or just show up.
  9. Do the right thing- always. No need to be right. Just do right. Simple.
  10. And finally, work on getting 45 out of the White House. No other explanation needed.

This is a reminder that we all have to move more towards what needs to be done–purposefully and strategically–as opposed to waiting for someone else to do it. Present company included.

You either start with day one OR one day. You decide.

Because the sun always comes out after the rain . . .
