Black out Tuesday
I am joining the Black Out Tuesday and not posting new content on this site today. The Beatles would not perform to segregated audiences. They took a stand against the racial injustice they encountered. The death of George Floyd and so many others that were unjust breaks my heart so much. It also pains me to see the rioting is happening in my country and in my own town.
I understand the anger and where people are coming from. I just will always believe peace is the answer. Life is very short and there's no time for fussing and fighting my friend. I have said it so many times on this site. If we want change to happen, we have to start with ourselves. We can't control anyone else in this world.
Take time to really think about what YOU can do to make a positive change toward people that are not the same race as you. What can YOU do to spread the Beatles' message of peace and love to that person?
I don't know what the solution is to all of this. I am just an overweight middle-aged white woman that loves the Beatles. I can't do a whole lot. The one thing I can always do is love. I can show kindness and love toward everyone. It does not matter the color of their skin, their religion, their political party, sexual orientation, or ability level. I see so much hate going on right now. I think a good start would be for each of us to stop spreading hate and start to just love. It won't solve all the issues that people are protesting about, but it might just make a small difference.
