Hello And thank you for stopping by!I hope you’re staying safe and are enjoying your summer so far.
Today I want to support a social media hop going on initiated by the lovely Justine Hovey (links to her social media at end of blog). I’m part of her Instagram hop so please visit us there and support all the great crafters that are taking part of this hop!
United we can be better. There are some amazing creations to draw inspiration from.
We are living some dangerous times that are affecting not only our health but our beliefs and our relationship with each other.
Look there is plenty going on in the world that is just not right and steps need to be taken so that future generations not only learn from our mistakes by also know that we took a stand against those injustices.
I’m a “latina” woman born in Chicago, IL to parents who both were born in the USA. I lived in Puerto Rico from the age of 3 until 15-years-old when I came back to USA. I have experienced racism for been a latin person and inequality for been a woman.
I speak good English (even if my spelling is a little shaddy), own a home, work full-time, raised a good, kind and conscientious daughter and pay quite a bit of taxes. I have never “drain the system” even in tough times, instead worked two jobs to get us through the those times.
What I’m trying to say is I’m a human being who just want to live a peaceful life. I try to be respectful and kind even in trying times.
There is a song I love by Disturbed (rock band) and is called “Who taught you how to hate.” You see our babies aren’t born hating another person because of the color of their skin, religion, or background. They are taught hate so lets change the future by teaching our children to love. Nelson Mandela said it best:
No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
Thank you for visiting and hope you stand next to all of us in the fight against racism and inequality.Many blessing and take care!Consuelo MoralesWonderingMindField
