It's very real and unfortunately my daughter has dealt with this during her middle school years.She is a very beautiful ,intelligent,and confident dark skin young lady. I can and will elaborate on this more in a future blog, but I needed to touch basis on this just a little to have a point of reference for today's blog. My point is that as I grow and learn more, it's easier for me to overlook negativity and ignorance, but it's harder for me to see my children having to learn to deal with it. As a child, my dad told me that there will always be ignorant people...I understood what he was saying, but I have a better understanding now. I have also had to tell my kids this.
Although some of life's experiences and challenges weren't so fun during the time, I now can see and understand the purpose of them. I thank God for keeping me during those hard times. I am grateful for those challenges bringing me into a more humble person. ~iMe~
