I've shared a few quotes and resources on social media in response to the current events in the USA. I am not adding my thoughts because my voice really doesn't matter.
As a white woman raised in the south I have seen racist acts and I've heard racist words. I've been on a lifelong journey to do the right thing when faced with a choice, and I've always been horrified by hate in any form towards any human or creature.
I've also been incredibly naive. I assumed that my intentions were enough. So I'm learning, and I'm listening and I'm making a choice every day to better understand how I can contribute in a positive way to the world around me.
Here are some of the resources I'm turning to right now...

I hope that wherever you are, you are able to dedicate some time to better understanding what's happening in our world right now. We can all do better. We can all support one another in that effort. Please leave information in the comments about books, authors, and social media you would like to recommend as well.
