Logistically it did not make sense for me to go to a community event on racism tonight. The kids were fried and so were we.
However, I heard the voice of my mom say what she has said my whole life, ” 90% of life is about showing up; physically, emotionally and spiritually”.
So I jumped into the car after the bedtime routine and made it just in time to see my friend’s daughter perform and a teen from our church lead a call for critical community dialogue .
I was glad I showed up. (Thanks Mom.)
