I didn’t sleep well last night. Brain was on overload at the number of images I saw in regards to the situation that occurred in Charlottesville. How am I witnessing things that I read in my history class? Why is there so much hatred in the world?
I am the only chocolate drop in my office. My mind wondered how the conversations would go today. Will my white co-workers be outraged with the display of hatred that occurred this weekend? Would the gentleman who was photographed wearing the Arkansas Engineering t-shirt be the topic of conversation?
To my surprise no one darken my door with any talks of what occurred this weekend. I should be happy, correct? Or should I take note of the silence that was very deafening this morning. I work with a group of very opinionated women. Yet I didn’t hear a single opinion about the hatred that was on display this weekend. Just have to remember the Nelson Mandela quote below:
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
