Hey, guys today we are going to talk about something we would not normally discuss on this blog. For those of you that do not know, we are based out of the United States and our country is facing a very trying time right now. We will not make a habit of discussing things like this on out blog, but we felt that we needed to speak up.
To our fellow Americans, no matter who you voted for in this election it is important to remember that every person currently living in this country is a person. We have made it a habit of dehumanizing the groups of people that we do not like. We are not here to tell you what to think or what to believe, but I would like for you to consider something for a moment. Imagine waking up in the morning, getting ready to head to work and finding that your property has been damaged. The reason being your skin color, sexual orientation, religion, or gender. All of these things are things that can not be controlled. This is what thousands of Americans are dealing with right now. Some of these things have happened personally to us others we have read about.
I ask that those of you who are not affected by this, please be sympathetic. People are not making this up. They are not looking for attention. No one deserves to feel like they are less than worthy because of anything. Treat the people who are going through these things with love and compassion, because they really need it right now.
To those of you who are victims of these horrible acts. You are not alone. I know it may feel like you are in a nightmare that you can not wake up from. I know it may all seem hopeless right now, but there are so many more people in your corner than you realize. If you need someone to talk to please reach out to us. Our social media accounts are linked at the bottom of this (and every) post. We check our accounts many times a day and we will be there for you. We will be your friend. Please remember that you are beautiful, powerful, and loved.
To the rest of the world. I know that watching us is like watching a train wreck in slow motion right now. All we need is a bit of time. We need time to pull ourselves together as a country and repair the damage that as been caused. We ask that you please give us the time and space needed to make that happen.
We really appreciate you taking the time to read this and taking in our perspective on this. Please remember that love trumps all the hate in the world.
