Here is the thing...You can’t right (or rewrite) history with these posts, I know that. You also can’t awaken empathy in the hearts of millions of patriots who have blind pride in our great country. Anger & frustration on one side only begets anger and frustration on the other side. We have done this victor-less dance for centuries. However, we can choose today (and everyday) to water the truth of our most shadowed flowers with love & light & watch them grow.
See, when we corroborate the historical lies about the founding of our country we stunt our nations spiritual growth, rob ourselves of the very possibility of healing & the glorious celebration of our shared humanity. We mask an infinite amount of beauty & strength; ritual & tradition; life & lessons when we block the truth of each other’s light. Today will always be #indigenouspeoplesday for me because the LOVE for my people & ancestors’ land require it! 📸:@matikawilbur - Matika's @ted talk about changing the way we see Native Americans and her amazing Project 562 is definitely worth googling

🇵🇷 N E W Y O R K L E T ‘ S G O ! 🇵🇷 A week after Hurricane Maria made landfall directly over Puerto Rico, the death toll stands at 16 and millions suffer from loss of power and running water. The storm forced at least 15,000 people into shelters, destroyed structural and housing infrastructure, shut down electricity, disrupted the distribution of gasoline and medicine and limited food and water supplies. For those interested in helping Puerto Ricans affected by Maria, philanthropic experts recommend donating to established charities. #puertorico #unitedforpuertorico
The greatest privilege of my life is watching this ultra light being grow. 📸: @thomaswirthensohn #raisingthelonious
MASS INCARCERATION IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST HUMANS RIGHTS CRISIS OF OUR TIME....come check out our new brilliant one woman show written & performed by @lizajessiepeterson See what the @nytimes says is an "intense and charming.... strikingly designed world premiere...excels. 'The Peculiar Patriot' is a comedy about a tragedy, and a patriotic call for reform. Ms. Peterson wants us to sit a while with the people our justice system puts away and think about what we could be doing differently" Come be apart of the solution & link up with one of our many community partners that are doing the frontline work! 🎟link in bio. Hope to see you at #NBT ❤️💚🖤
Couldn't be more inspired or proud to see my Auntie Lo's work live on in one of the most powerful and important shows I've seen all year. Congratulations @annepasternak & @brooklynmuseum for such a righteous exhibit. 💪🏾❤️👑
👭👯✨S I S T E R H O O D ✨👯👭 #Sisterhood is noting short of oxygen to me...my greatest survival instinct is simply...that...sisterhood. It is both my most righteous weapon & the secret ingredient in my various selfcare recipes.
Took me many years to understand, wrestle, fail, trip, misconstrue, cling, fall short, underestimate, overreach, show up, be absent, give space, hold space, create space, ask for forgiveness, apologize, forgive, forgive, forgive, forgive again, heal and be prepared for just how to be a good sister to the women in my life (all women); to acknowledge their divinity as Goddess each & every time I encounter them. I'm thankful for ALL the mamas & aunties & cousins & sisters & gurlfriends & Goddesses that have been abundantly patient with the fragility of my journey & growth. Thank you for not giving up on me, or us....especially at the most darkest of times-when you nor I could see each other's reflection in the other's eyes. Loving oneself wholly is a radical journey that requires HER village & I am deeply thankful for mine. ❤️❤️❤️ #yallknowwhoyouare #justneededtogoonrecord #loveisanactionword #sacredsunday
