These are remarkable times.  We have much work to do.  As I was driving in this morning, I saw a guy painting imaginary graffiti.  It made me think what I would spray paint if I did that.  And I realized very quickly, I’d paint Dr. Cornel West’s quote about justice.  He said, “Justice is what love looks like in public.”  I’ve always believed that love is the number quality of leadership.

Now is a time of listening and action, not talking.  This isn’t going to be a long blog because there are so many important voices BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Color) speaking and we should be listening and acting.

There are so many resources and places to turn to learn, often for the first time.  Please consider sharing yours with our United Way and me.  I can always do better and I am committed to that each day for the rest of my life.
