Help Promote Equity in Education

Greetings, dear Reader!

My friends and brothers have co-founded a nonprofit that has been KILLING IT when it comes to promoting equity in education.

Through the Leadership Brainery, diverse and first-generation student leaders are empowered and given the tools necessary to succeed and change their communities.

I’ve been a part of the LB family since its inception, and if you’ve been reading my work, you know the Quaker values of Community and Equality mean a lot to me.

That’s why I am asking you to consider giving to their end of year campaign. It’s a chance to let your gift of any amount go toward changing the world for a student, and for us all.

Solace

The broken parts I try to hide

Have the greatest hope for healing.

Perhaps the world will wholly change

If we show what we’re feeling.

Broken heart or wounded pride,

Sorrow, grief, or anxiousness,

Joy and passion, peace and pride

Have power to affirm and bless.

Why should we believe we stand

Alone upon the precipice

When round the bend, a partner waits

To share in what this moment is.

Not alone, you’re not alone,

My God! How I wish you could see

That I do find a mate in you

And you can take solace in me.

Thanks for Reading! Be Blessed!

Dreaming of Peace

Peace comes not from threat of force,

From fear or wealth, some fragile source.

Peace is found in people whole

And fed and free; when every soul

Has food to eat, a place to sleep,

When we collectively can weep

For all injustice, every loss,

Beyond all superficial gloss.

When we build each other up

And share of every meal and cup,

When we drop arms of every kind,

Maybe then some Peace we’ll find.

Yes, educated, healed, and loved,

We’ll find the Peace we’re dreaming of.

Intertwined

The trick is to recall

That what harms one affects us all.

In joy, we will gather;

Yet when life breaks down we scatter.

For reasons yet unknown,

We feel we must suffer alone.

Pain, though, truly binds us;

Whoever we are, it finds us.

I write to remind us

To not let our own grief blind us.

Sometimes Life will grind us…

That’s why God has intertwined us.
