Eyes Wide Open
I do not know what to say. I am terrified of saying the wrong thing.
And silence is equal to complicity.
Complicity feeds injustice and inequality.
I pledge to examine my own complicit actions and thoughts, to challenge them, to learn from them, to grow from them, and to change them into action towards equality.
I can only come to this, today and always, from my privileged whiteness, from my heart, from my history.
I pledge to examine my own racist actions and thought, to challenge them, to learn from them, to grow from them, and to take action against them.
This isn’t about me but I have to start with me.
This isn’t about you but it you have to start with you.
the universe is one living
breathing, pulsing organism
and humanity exits inside of it.
if your self-love does not ever
also call you to community-love,
then perhaps what you have
found is not self-love
but a form of self-hatred.
