As we are alive in the making of history, I know 2017 is a year that we will all not only remember but we will be making our individual histories and directing our own stories. With the first African American president being inaugurated in a few years ago, with the rights of one segment of our population being taken to court in the same time, what are we afraid of. I say by boycotting the inauguration because a homophobic minister is giving the opening prayer would make all of us in the same category, in a category of separating us from one another.
What is all this fear creating? MORE fear! It is all about SELF-ESTEEM! If I truly love myself, then I can love my neighbor as myself. If I am having poor self esteem, then I will keep other separate from me. We all know people with healthy self-esteem, they are the ones that raise us up while in their presence. They see us as who we really are, not as someone to be feared.
In the long run, we are all created equal and I think at this time in history we have the obligation to make sure everyone is respected and celebrated, even those with different points of view. It is time that PEACE reigns from within and thus transferred to all. So lets all start celebrating who we are and those that are different than us. Just maybe we can really all have peace in our lives and witness it in the lives of others.
