I didn't know she was dating a black boy, did you? lt took me all day to think up a response, which l didn't send personally but thought I would share for anyone else that "may not know" Yes in fact I did know, but the color of his skin doesn't define who he is. What does define who is he is how he treats my daughter. I see my daughter dating a boy that comes to my house and shows me nothing but respect (a big deal in my book). It's always Yes Ma'am, No Ma'am, we talk about football and baseball, he tells me bye when he leaves, and has not once shown me a lack of manners or respect. I see my daughter dating a boy who treats her good He takes her on dates, to ballgames, out to eat..not to a club or partying on the weekends. I see my daughter dating a boy who takes her to church with him. Every Sunday. He plays in the band, she sits with his family. How many young men these days make church a priority? None of the others have He doesn't hit her, cuss her, lie to her, or make her cry. Would I rather her date a white boy that did, to keep from her dating another race? Absolutely not. So that's my response to the question I was asked And I know people have their own opinion, but at the end of the day, the fact that my daughter has someone that loves her and treats her like a queen makes me happy.

 Today my daughter changed her profile picture. After
 maybe 5 minutes I get a text.." I didn't know she was
 dating a black boy, did you?
 lt took me all day to think up a response, which l
 didn't send personally but thought I would share for
 anyone else that "may not know"
 Yes in fact I did know, but the color of his skin doesn't
 define who he is. What does define who is he is how
 he treats my daughter.
 I see my daughter dating a boy that comes to my
 house and shows me nothing but respect (a big deal
 in my book). It's always Yes Ma'am, No Ma'am, we talk
 about football and baseball, he tells me bye when he
 leaves, and has not once shown me a lack of manners
 or respect.
 I see my daughter dating a boy who treats her good
 He takes her on dates, to ballgames, out to eat..not to
 a club or partying on the weekends.
 I see my daughter dating a boy who takes her to
 church with him. Every Sunday. He plays in the band,
 she sits with his family. How many young men these
 days make church a priority? None of the others
 have
 He doesn't hit her, cuss her, lie to her, or make her
 cry. Would I rather her date a white boy that did, to
 keep from her dating another race? Absolutely not.
 So that's my response to the question I was asked
 And I know people have their own opinion, but at the
 end of the day, the fact that my daughter has
 someone that loves her and treats her like a queen
 makes me happy. That's something I've never had in
 my life and I'm glad she does.

Brains, Energy, and Food: "You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic. If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass." - Bruce Lee Every thought we have activates a cluster of neurons, they send an action potential down the axons to cross synapse that releases neurotransmitters. If we keep reactivating this network, it becomes stronger because surrounding glial cell feed the cluster and it becomes thicker and stronger. We are literally talking ourselves out of success. If something goes wrong in your life and you make the mistake of making it personal telling yourself a shit story about "how it is", you’re dirtying up your mind with dangerous shit. All of our fears are self-created. They form in the brain's default mode network and are greatly amplified when the brain's alarm and avoidance network is on. This drives our decisions because emotion supersedes thought. We fear rejection, embarrassment, loss, and abandonment, powerful emotions that override positive thought. For most people they are focused on what could go wrong and feel embarrassed; this is EXACTLY what creates these emotions that are holding us back. There's a 90-second rule which states that, if one can redirect their focus off the bullshit story, the network will stop firing neurotransmitters down the action potential; that kills the emotion. Negative Emotion is just like too much alcohol, we need to sober up! Most people cannot do this; 15 months ago I couldn't either when it counted the most because there is an underlying cause of stress, cellular stress, which puts the brain in the SAME CHAOS, alarm and avoidance. I call this red stress, and it's in the food supply in the form of AGE's, ALE's, aldehydes, estrogen mimics, microplastics, mitotoxins etc. Your body is at war, and it needs cofactors to fight each battle, and most people lack there too. This war must be financed, it diverts energy to fight battle after battle. You will experience this as being tired, lose focus, become moody and stressed. Wouldn't this energy be better-spent financing focus, passion, and success? Take out red stress💫 I'm building a free course on doing just that, it's opening us soon.

 In 5th grade some boys hid my desk in the boys
 bathroom. I was confused when I got to school and it
 was missing, so I just sat on the floor and read my
 book until the teacher came in and made them put it
 back
 I realize now they were trying to trick me into go into
 the boys bathroom, but no one actually told me
 that's where my desk was, and it didn't occur to me
 to ask
 Looking back I realize they had to make the effort to
 get to school early to move it, and I feel a tiny bit of
 regret for not reacting more.

 In 3rd grade Richard brought his new lacrosse set in
 for show in tell. the ball went missing during class
 time and at the end of the day we all had to check
 our bookbags to look for it. I only glanced in mine (I
 just wanted to go home), but that evening I found it
 at the bottom of my bag. I was so scared of being
 blamed, I threw it into the neighbor's yard and never
 told anyone.
 I found out 2 years later that my bully Luke put it
 there to frame me, and he was still extremely
 frustrated I hadn't gotten caught.
 I'm pretty sure Richard got a new ball.

 I had a crush on a boy I met in Kindergarten and
 made NO attempts to hide it because the people on
 TV were always telling each other when they liked
 each other. Didn't work as well as I'd hope (i.e. didn't
 work AT ALL and no boy wanted to hang out with me
 ever after that), but that's not the point.

The city counsel voted under cover of darkness to sell the park to the non-profit run by these men, and construction vehicles immediately moved in to remove the statues. They were gone by morning.

I just think it’s important to remember that this was a community effort and not the work of individuals. Fascists love to worship the narratives of “Great Men.” It is the responsibility of the resistance to remember that nothing can happen without the support of the community.
