We Need To Do Better As A Society

In today's episode, I share my thoughts on the last week's killings and how we can all work towards having a more united society.

We need to rise up and speak up!
Seek justice and not vengeance.
If you maintain the silence
Then you further the violence.
Yes, it is uncomfortable to speak out sometimes but what thing that is worthwhile isn't worth going through some pain for.

Without the pain, there isn't any gain.

So all I'm saying
is that communication needs to start now.

Transparency needs to start now.

Transparency that allows you to look deep down into your psyche and ask these questions

What do I overlook everyday?
How can I understand the misunderstood?
How can I be a voice for the unheard and how can I clean up the system?

As I'm writing this right now, I'm hoping that this is the step towards building the bridge that will unite us as a society.

I don't want to contribute to any more walls that perpetuate stereotypes and strengthen divisions.

Yes we are all different and what we do with our differences needs to make a difference

Let'd do better as a society. I know we can! :)
