〰️ commemorating the life and legacy of dr. martin luther king jr today and every day 🕊 as well as the folks who fought for racial justice alongside him as agents of radical change 🖤✊🖤 a fight that will not be over until there’s justice and liberation for black lives everywhere!
“if peace means keeping my mouth shut in the midst of injustice and evil, i don’t want it. peace is not simply the absence of conflict, but the existence of justice for all people.” (🖼: @stattheartist via @colorofchange) 〰️
did you catch our very own @boriskodjoe on the @wendyshow ?
Incase you missed it, here’s a little snippet of Boris speaking about the #HelpOurHeroes initiative! Did you know that together we have been able to give away over $500,000 worth of masks so far? What an accomplishment! 🧡💪
We want to thank you for all of your love and support with this initiative. 🙏 This is such a great reminder that together we CAN make a difference! Please stay safe out there and don’t forget to #MaskUp. ✨
Thank you @daniellability for being a #spinabifida warrior! Happy #worldspinabifidaday 💛
It may sound strange to some people, but in so many ways I’m really thankful to have been born with Spina Bifida. I think that having a disability gives me a really unique perspective on life and the way I view other people.
My disability has taught me patience, empathy, resilience, problem solving, gratitude, and determination that I’m not sure I would have under different circumstances. It has also taught me to value others for their character rather than their appearance and what society sees as “normal”.
To me, disabilities come in many forms- addiction, anger, depression, anxiety, ego... these are all things that affect that way we live our lives and interact with the people around us. So in a way we all have disabilities, and the thing that matters is how we respond and react to our circumstances that matter.
