I visited a local forest and saw this little hole with the leaf looking like a welcome mat. It made me think about who and what I welcome into my life. Yesterday I talked with a friend about the Civil Rights Movement and how so little has changed. I confessed to crying because my brother has shown acceptance of racism. My friend wanted to know if my father was alive what would he say. He spent his military career being opposed to racism and taught us kids to never judge someone on their appearance. He would be so disappointed in the rift my brother has created with his current behavior. A part of me wants to hide in the forest. However I know I have social justice work to do
