Our systems are so very broken. As a healthcare worker I have seen this first hand. It is such a huge injustice that this is mostly motivated by the color of a person's skin. We should be above this. Our nation is a great nation and yet we are blinded by out white privilege. It saddens me to no end. I know that my black brothers and sisters do not need my sympathy. I am hoping to be able to stand with them with empathy. I am hoping to be able to help be a part of the change. It just feels so daunting, and heavy. But once again, it's my white privilege that has allowed me to ignore these injustices and inequalities. I can not afford to ignore them anymore. Not when so many are suffering. I just hope that I can find what is mine to do.
