UNITED is a state we need to achieve.

United means different things to different people, ‘united’ to me means a commitment to collaboration with shared empathy and compassion. I feel we have become a ‘me first’ society, and it’s been that way for far too long. Now is the time for change.

More than ever people seek the easy road. While the problems we face are not easy, they are easy to see and right before us: equal rights, social stigmas, racial inequity and environmental issues… just to list a few.

To pretend that everyday life can go on the same way as it always has is not an option. Again, the change that’s needed isn’t an easy undertaking, but if UNITED, it’s possible to overcome. With Pride Month coming to an end, I feel it’s truly just a beginning. I remain proud of the changes we’ve seen, encouraged by the path we are on, and hopeful about what’s possible.

To claify, this isn’t about ‘some’ of us. It’s about the ‘sum’ of us.

Please remember the following as Thavius Beck reminds us in ‘To Make Manifest’

Thoughts determine what we want.

Actions determine what we get
