I hope this doesn’t offend any body but I had to get this off my chest… As I sit here and browse the Web… all I keep seeing is the violence happening around the U.S. I am a person of color (hispanic) and it just saddens me that we are still living in a world full of hate. In my younger years I experience a lot of discrimination. Even total in recent years I have had a coup incidents. Back in my younger days it was understandable to an extent. I hung around the wrong crowd and dressed like a person associated with those crowds. At this age I didn’t thing being an average mom I’d have more issues but I have. I have been thinking of my kids and how scary it is for them to be male and of color. They are mixed but still have brown skin. I am filled with fear and anxiety as I watch all the violence happening right now. I played what’s going on by Marvin Gaye just to try and calm myself down and try to think of hope for a more peaceful future. It’s definitely not easy. I fell bad for the families who have lost their loved ones and who are sad and angry over the unfair treatment of the loved ones. When will this ever end? Are we going to have a civil war about it?? It seems like someone just got so fed up they decided to take matters into their own hands in Dallas, Texas. It’s not the answer. I wish people would come out and address the issues and take responsibility. I am scared and distraught over what can happen if people get more out of hand. Peace and love is needed so bad right now. ='(

    I, too, am sad. I do not know what to do. We can tell ourselves to not discriminate, to not profile, but in crisis you fall back into reactionary mode. I do not know how to train one to be color blind. Open to lessons offered.

    I’m not in the U.S., but the news coming out of there on and talk on social media has been a bit overwhelming lately. Yesterday evening I watched the news about Dallas with my dad and I had to get away for a stress-cry afterwards (though I was having an otherwise crappy day as well). The world’s a scary place right now and I can’t imagine what it’s like for you guys over there. I’m sorry. It seems like there’s always something new for the world to grieve of late.

    Sending you good thoughts, for what it’s worth.
