  1. After listening to the podcast portion a question, that haunts me, comes to mind. What is it that makes a person throw their own lives away as a racist? It’s an irrational feeling that leads to irrational destructive Behavior. In their podcast last week, Frangela Duo, said that if we “stand up and speak up” WHENEVER we see discrimination we can start a revolution. I love that. My Grammy says “EVERYBODY welcome is the meaning of life” and when she says everybody she MEANS everybody.
    There is so much work that needs to be done. As always, my dear friend Lara, thank you for adding purpose to my life!👍👊

  2. For the life of me Buffalo Tom, I do not know or understand how (or why) this mindset happens to people (way too many people) – yet here we are, and this sh*t should be over with and it’s not. EVERYBODY WELCOME is wise. Hugs to you my friend!
