A Sad Day

I just finished listening to the news. I listen to it several times a day.

I’ve got nothing to share that hasn’t already been shared.

I found this photo of me back when I was starting a two-year project on Capitol Hill…2014.

Two years later, I came home a very cynical and sad person having personally experienced…the vitriol and bullying there.

For 25 years of my life…the majority of it actually…I’ve worked with children…and at some point along the way, shared with every child that demonstrating empathy, compassion and vulnerability while also holding boundaries and boldly standing up for what you believe in are essential elements to empowered and transformative leadership.

That’s why…I’ve got nothing to add to this conversation.

I’m sad. I’m mad. I’m scared. I’m frustrated and that’s why I keep plugging away doing what I can in my way. And you keep doing what you do in your way.

“I don’t know if it’s possible to take hate away from people. Not even people like us, who’ve seen firsthand what hate can do. We’re all hurting. We’re all going to be hurting for a long time. And we, probably more than anyone else out there, will be searching for a new reality every day. A better one.”
