Okay, so you may or may not know this about me, but I am a follower of Christ and believe in Him wholeheartedly.
Anyway last year I strayed from Him and was ruining my life basically and I noticed that the further I strayed from him, the worse my life became. This year and the end of last year…
God is good all day, every day.
Presumption is judging someone by their outward appearance and not seeing them for who God says they are. And cutting off their life and potential by your past feelings and by who you think a person should be for you.
- ― Piper Caleb (via psych-quotes)
This interracial couple was brutally attacked in Long Island City early Saturday, leaving each with assorted injuries after three men jumped them as they left a bar.
This is the kind of stuff that really as an interracial blogger heck as an interracial supporter breaks my heart. I’m literally speechless right now to learn that even though it seems like we’ve come so far we are still not accepted by a lot of people and that’s really sad. I’m putting this video up because I believe we should be aware when something like this in our community happens but awareness can only go so far. I can’t just sit back and ignore when something like this happens, we have to do better we have to. How many more people have to suffer and get hurt in order for change to really start. Change can start with you, you may already support the cause but something you can do is teach your children to love and not hate. The future is with the younger generation and if we could all make a commitment to bring that generation up with love in their hearts for everyone then we can win this battle that we’ve been fighting for so many years. Change starts with me and it starts with you as well. With all of that being said I will say that we have made triumphant progress. There are so many supporters and I am amazed everyday by it. And I thank you for your kind words, you guys will never know how much it means to me. So please don’t be discouraged by this kind of stuff and thank you for your support. #SpreadLoveNotHate
