I am sorry-but I can not find the words to blog this week. I am instead reposting "I am my children's mother" It was something I wrote back in 2012 in response to another tragedy.
This week, nine people were shot dead in South Carolina-Simply because of the color of their skin. This was an act of terrorism.( No matter what many presidential hopefuls and media "analysts" are implying.) Racism is an ugly cancer in this country. Ignoring it, does not make it go away. I am heartsick. This is the world that I am raising my children in. We as humanity need to face this head on-look at it-acknowledge it-and fix it.
