Takeaway From A Sally Hemings Dinner

"Injustice prevails where hopelessness lives." -  Bryan Stevenson

Effective immediately, I'm planning to spend a lot more time involved with people committed to fighting oppression. I'm fortunate to know a small group of these people now, but it's time to work more purposefully to meet others. I welcome any ideas you have that might assist me in this pursuit.

The reasons for initiating this shift in my social life are selfish. It's easier to be authentic and harder to feel hopeless around people like this. I learn something from each encounter. The stories I hear about the journey others have taken remind me to be patient with the new people I meet who are beginning their journey.

"The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." -  Martin Luther King, Jr.
