Dream Thought #82: Making over our world

A country is only as good… only as strong as the people who make it up and the country turns into what the people want it to become… I don’t believe any longer that we can afford to say that it is entirely out of our hands. We made the world we’re living in and we have to make it over.
- James Baldwin

Shell, thank you for this.

It is ironic that, in spite of how long I have been going to Giovanni's Room (now PhillyAIDSThrift @ Giovanni's Room) in the Center City section of Philadelphia, that I have yet to read the novel, "Giovanni's Room," written by (the late and great) James Baldwin.

Indeed, between the massacre at the Pulse Dance Club in Orlando, Florida, the murders of both Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, I have been affected very deeply, and especially on both an emotional and Spiritual level.

I AM crystal clear that I need to do more. And the plans are already in motion.
