“NO HATE IN MY HOLLER @artbylacyhale In times such as these, where so many people are fighting for equality, battling injustice and gross infringement of human rights, I am home, watching and listening, rooting people on from the comforts of a safe haven.
I know this is the story for a lot of people. I feel guilt for not physically marching or raging against the discrimination of our system in which people are disproportionately represented and often neglected or worse. Like many people isolated by the mountains, home quarantining, or living a life of little travel, I feel helpless for those who are suffering.
This is not the case. We are not powerless. All people, anywhere, can encourage and inspire change where it’s needed most: everywhere. Wherever you are right now, there are problems. There are people who need information and a friendly reminder of the significance of all people to help others who are less fortunate. If you have been blessed with shelter, food, a family, and life in which you do not have to dodge bullets or fear becoming a refugee, you have an obligation. We are so lucky to live where we have access to so much more than a disgustingly high number of people across the world. Fix where you are, do what you can. Rid hate. Share information and resources. Demand change.
If we all work on fixing where we’re from, the whole world will be a better place for us to enjoy.”
