Dishonesty dishonors.

Personal integrity matters.

I am angry

I will not deny it.

I am angry.

The men calling out ‘bitches, deserve this.”

I am angry.

The lack of representation.

I am angry.

The years of continuing hypocrisy.

The hijacking of democracy.

The ways that met the means

and the means were ugly.

I am angry at watching the feast of ego parading around in front of me. I am angry at hurts being inflicted, hearts being broken, and children being victimized.

A spotlight is being cast on the things that aren’t working, so they can be addressed, atoned and freed, bringing everything up and out of the shadows for a Love filled healing so we can experience the Truth.

There is no more hiding. There will only be healing.

Love met the truth today.

I will no longer tolerate the loss of personal integrity.

I will no longer tolerate degrading behavior.

While I do not have the answer to the complex web of societal issues, I do know this, I can practice personal peace of mind.

I will no longer turn a blind eye to behaviors that cause harm

Feigning shock when harm ensues.

I will join together in a practice of humanity

I will hold myself in high regard.

I will own what I know.

When a brother stumbles I will extend a hand of support.

I will offer respect and grace in every moment.

I am angry. I see it all. I take it all in. I choose what’s next.

Love > Fear.
