The global demonstrations of unity that we are seeing to support Black Lives Matter are powerful. I stand for equality, justice and systemic change, and truly hope that all of our efforts move us closer to these outcomes. The organization of activities such as protests, social media support and sharing resources has happened very quickly and is incredibly empowering! I feel called to offer this reminder as I have needed it myself - it is important for us to make intentional choices before we participate in an activity.
To do this, allow time, space and awareness. This can come from cutting yourself some slack and slowing down for just a tick. It’s okay to take your own time in this process. This mission we are on globally is a marathon, not a sprint.
