Change is Coming

We have to be open to change because it's coming whether you like it or not.

Change is Coming

I'm sure many people have had those moments in the past where they've said or done things that weren't right or good. Maybe at that time, in the past, it was acceptable. Maybe other people laughed or went along with it. How many people kept their feelings or opinions under wrap because they were the minority in the group?

Guess what? That's changing, and it's been a work in progress for too long. We should no longer feed into attitudes of people unwilling to change to improve our society. No one should feel like they are backed into a corner and kept silent. More people have opened their eyes, and have come forward to speak out against the inequalities in this nation. So for those of you that want to remain complacent in your hurtful thoughts and opinions, you are the minority now.

You can sit there and hear millions of voices speak up against being mistreated, and still plead that your biased views are right. With confirmation bias, you can sit behind your computer screen or stand on the opposite side and allow the same, outdated information to feed your mind. If it contradicts what you believe, you can simply push that information to the side and remain in your bubble. That doesn't mean the majority will stand with you.

We have a growing number of people that will no longer stand to be mistreated, or watch others being abused. You have a choice to stand with our fellow people, to educate yourself about what is going on now, and about our history. I don't just mean what you've read in textbooks or picked up from a TV show or book. Explore other forms that are so easily available to us now.

If we identify the problem within ourselves, we need to work to change it. It's your choice to remain ignorant and refuse to accept the changes coming. That doesn't mean the rest of us will stay behind with you.
