Happy Tuesday my beings of human nature! Welcome to the day that you stop for a moment to assess what’s really going on in the world! Today’s Daily Word is dedicated to having compassion! I purposely do not watch the news because of what I deem the sensationalism of tragedy and the dehumanization of our species but despite that it is somewhat impossible to not notice all of the unfortunately tragedies that are happening in the world both locally and abroad. My brother and business manager Tru Pettigrew @truaccess said it best “The death of Robin Williams due to an alleged suicide is tragic. As are the horrific deaths of Mike Brown, Eric Garner and countless others like them that go unreported. My condolences to all the families and may they all Rest In Peace! If anyone out there is dealing with depression, please speak up! And regarding the disproportionate number of injustices taking place against our young black males, we all have to step up to help impact change! As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. taught us, “an injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”. He goes on to remind us that whatever affects one of us directly, affects us all indirectly. Tragedies of all kind affect us all. Effective immediately we all need to have compassion and realize that we are all one people fighting an uphill battle. While it is easy to become frustrated and give up hope, we must understand that instead of giving up we need to band together and stand up to #InJustice! “As Steve Mariboli once said When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light. When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it. When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back. When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some. When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal. When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best. Dare to be the best you can – At all times, Dare to be!”
