If we are going to be our best selves, we must acknowledge our shortcomings and admit that a worst side of ourselves exists.
In a nation that celebrated its independence and united in the spirit of love recently, current events reveal that we aren’t really that free (from hate) after all. So how do we resolve this and get back to being a United States of America?
As a (spiritual) believer, I have one path that will work, but the world is not all believers (& even believers are… divided). Here’s my suggestion:
Step 1: Call out/expose the evil of racism for what it is.
Step 2: Acknowledge the system that has been in control for so long (a system that is seamlessly running on autopilot).
Step 3: Dismantle the system and build a suitable replacement. Take into consideration the concerns of all sides; everyone’s hopes and fears matter.
Step 4: Be willing to see it through for as long as it takes. Make changes as needed.
Just like changing our health, finances and relationships is an ongoing process, the racial divide in America will not happen overnight, but it’s got to start NOW.
