In honor of Black History Month, I’ve gathered some of my favorite quotes to share with you. I hope this gives you the courage and strength to endure the trials that we pass through both currently and historically. History is so important! There is so much to learn from history and from each other on a daily basis. All we have to do is focus on our commonalities and learn to rejoice in our diversity. It is truly the spice of life.
Since I was a child, I’ve been painfully aware of how many people around me tried to “make everyone just like them”. In other words, if someone was different in any way, it seemed to be an absolute “sin”. That’s something I never understood and did not agree with.
I don’t pat myself on the back for that because I was born with a questioning mind. I’ve never accepted the “status quo” without questioning it. I can’t remember a time in my life when disparaging remarks about any group or individual didn’t deeply bother me.
Diversity is a joy! The world is full of so many different cultures and beautiful stories. Why must people box themselves into a particular belief system? Why not continue to grow and expand our awareness of the beauty that surrounds us each day?
Here are some of my favorite quotes. I’ve included these and others on a new page of eCard that you are welcome to use either to send to others or to post on social media. As you might already know, I really adore quotes. They are quick and punch right through to an important point like no other medium. The right quote gets people’s attention! Enjoy my friends and remember, together we light the way. 🔥
