最近想了好多Thoughts on COVID and Racial Discrimination

Posted by Lin Xin Ang on

Lots of thinking, reading,⁠
discussing, learning.⁠

About⁠
#covid19,
#circuitbreakersg ending,⁠
kids going back to school,⁠
a new, changing way of life.⁠

And the #georgefloyd incident that surfaced conversations on⁠
racism,⁠
prejudice,⁠
inequality,⁠
privilege,⁠
peace.⁠

Conversations in lands far away,⁠
in our own country,⁠
in our hearts.⁠

What do we think?⁠
What do we do?⁠
What do we tell our children?⁠
What would our children tell their children?⁠
How do these moments in history shape us?⁠

For many days, I wasn't sure what to share on social media,⁠
with the recent flurry of eloquent and passionate posts⁠
on various trending topics.⁠

What can I do to add value to the community,⁠
what can I share to build others up?⁠

Perhaps my place in this space⁠
is to continue sharing great books.⁠

Books that⁠
open our eyes to see the world beyond our existence,⁠
cause us to ponder,⁠
urge us to put ourselves in others' shoes,⁠
teach us important lessons,⁠
stir us to make changes⁠
in our hearts⁠
in our homes⁠
in this world.⁠

May we raise a generation of children who grow up to be adults who⁠
think,⁠
work hard and play hard,⁠
find ways to adapt and survive,⁠
love deeply,⁠
care for the struggles of others, and⁠
use their privilege to better their fellow man.⁠
