Bridging The Gap

June 24, 2020 by

Like the pandemic was not enough for us to deal with?  For real?  Then the killings and the protests occurred.

Having grown up as one of the few white people on an American Indian Reservation, I have an acute sensitivity to issues of diversity, inclusion, and race.  My sensitivity was and is especially profound since I was beaten up every day at the Tribal School I attended simply because of the color of my skin.

It is a very real loss to society and individual dignity when people are prohibited from reaching their full human potential because of racism or other bigotry.

I hope and pray that you and yours are making a special effort to get along with, and help, diverse groups in your community.  Please bridge the gap.

We are all in this together,
