As I look at the succulents and the seedlings of my little garden, they remind me of how precious life is. How every seed is a miracle that deserves to be cherished and loved. Like the plants that will eventually grow from those seeds, we all emerge to be unique human beings.
The news in our world may be dark and there have been many times where hope has seemed almost lost, but then the stories emerge of people standing together. Of neighbors talking to one another and realizing that regardless the color of our skin, we are all the same.
Each breath is a sacred gift. It is our duty to defend it and to cherish the lives and the rights to breathe of our brothers and sisters, not just now, but always because it is what is right.
It breaks my heart to see our nation hurting so, but from the chaos and ashes we will rise with greater love and opened eyes.
I stand with you.
Black lives matter.
All of my love,
