As I write this, there’s a lot of unrest in our nation. There are helicopters overhead, sirens blaring here in Los Angeles. People are hurting, have been hurting for a long time. Amid peaceful protests, looting by opportunists, curfews, and Covid-19, it’s enough to make me pause. The garden offers a way to feel grounded, but not an excuse to ignore what’s going on around us.
I will use my privilege to speak up to support those who peacefully protest in order to be heard. In addressing racism in my daily life. It is overdue. Equality is not political. It is a human right. May these images sooth and inspire us all to take action in support of equality everywhere.
