What’s happening in our world right now is heartbreaking on so many levels. I’ve been at a loss for words the last couple of days and I am still am. I’ve been worried about saying the wrong thing, but saying nothing at all is worse. I think we all need to use our platforms for what matters, regardless of how big or small that platform is. It doesn’t sit right with me to post a photo of a cute outfit without recognizing the injustice of what is happening.
The murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud and countless others are horrific, the police brutality that continues in our country is disgusting. Racism and bigotry is unfortunately very real. Seeing my hometown of Minneapolis literally being burned and broken to the ground is awful. That’s not the city I know and love. We all need to do better, and that starts with speaking out and doing our part to be just simply be a good person.
Speak to your kids about what is happening. Call out your racist family and friends. Do your part in whatever way you can- donate to important causes (I will list some below) and show up for those around you. We can’t be silent anymore. Things have to change and we all need to be held accountable. Black Lives Matter. Humans matter. Period. 🖤
And while I’m at it, can we all agree to vote Trump out of the White House come November? I think we’ve all had enough of that fucking guy... Xo
