I’m so late to this. Man, I don’t know what happened this month. I’ve literally told myself that I need to do this every day and just didn’t. I don’t really have an excuse, it was pure laziness on my part. I promise I’ll do better next month.
The Black Lives Matter movement is something that I feel very strongly about and although no one really sees my bullet journal, I wanted to remember this time when I look back and make sure that I feel good about my support.
Personally I haven’t been able to donate much money to the cause, but I’ve made sure to sign the petitions and to share information. I’ve also been having conversations with members of my family. I’m not sure how much is getting through, but hopefully it’ll encourage the people around me to educate themselves about the movement and to support the cause as well.
I think the important thing to remember during this time is that every little bit helps and that we all need to continue to educate ourselves on these issues. If you’re reading this and have the means or time, I encourage you to check out the following websites:
We need to do better. We need to educate ourselves. We need to give our support.
This isn’t about politics. This is about humanity and compassion for others.
I was going to post my monthly spread as well, but it feels wrong to add it to this post. Its basically the same as past months, so nothing really necessary to include, and I don’t want to take away from the rest of the post by bringing this back to my journal.
Anyway, I really do hope that even just one person sees this and checks out the resources above. Hopefully the world progresses in the right way and July brings justice to the many families who have been subjected to police brutality.
