Affirmations From The Galaxy
In light of the violence that seems to escalate every few days I am listing affirmations related to overcoming the fear that accompanies surges in violence locally and globally.

Let us give and receive love and acceptance in the face of violence……C.C. Silsbee
“Don’t go through the system. Do it yourself. Do something you believe in.”…….John Singleton

Black Lives Matter to me personally. There is no way to calculate the impact of the black community on my childhood growing into adulthood and beyond. I had black teachers, role models, parental figures, peers, my best friend in kindergarten (Gina Coleman), one of my closest friends from grade 1-high school, (Tevis B.) my first dance teacher, my first boyfriend, countless peers,…….who have all influenced me and contributed beautiful threads to the tapestry of the person I am everyday. We have no idea of the potential impact these young lives could have had on our society, art, medicine, industry, innovations, technology, environmental protection, global diplomacy, sports, politics, parenting, education,……..Tragically we will never know.
