I’m starting with myself.

I’m starting with myself.

I will try to understand.

I will educate myself.

I will accept how much I don’t know.

I will listen.

I will learn about myself.

I will learn about my privilege.

I will learn about the disconnect between our country’s leaders and its people.

I will make sure my kids know how I feel and let them come to their own conclusions.

I will not be quiet anymore.

I will try hard to say what I’m feeling with my vocal cords, not my keyboard.

I will be kind.

I will be respectful of others opinions.

I will learn why 65 million people voted for her and 62 million people voted for him and 90 million people didn’t vote for anyone.

I will remember the only thing I can control is myself.

I will try even more to understand.

I will stop with the outrage, and start with the action.

I will learn about the media and politics and bias and truth.

I will talk about how I just don’t know and that’s okay.

I will remember its not about him or her or them, its about us.

I will talk about the illusion of safety.

I believe we’re going to be okay.

I am brave and open-minded.

And I will greet fear every morning with a friendly tip of the hat.
