With everything that is going on in the world at the moment, I thought I would share my thoughts about the current #blacklivesmatter movement. It saddens me to be writing this post today, as I feel in the year 2020, it should not be a necessary post to write. I am a white girl, and because of that I will never truly understand what it feels like to be discriminated because of my colour or heritage. Of course, I have problems in daily life, but it is not my time to share, it’s their time. Your time. I don’t often post about political and social issues on my blog, but I personally feel this needs to be spoken about. I do not understand, I will never understand. But I support you, and will forever support you.
It shames me the behaviour I have seen lately across the world, in particular individuals that believe it is okay to discriminate and abuse innocent people because of their beliefs, opinions and colour. I have always, and always will stand up for any racism I come across, and will continue to stand by my own beliefs and opinions on racism – there is no excuse. Daisies and Bruises was created as an outlet for both myself, and my readers across the globe. Please contact me for any support needed. Obviously a little disclaimer, I am not a licensed councillor, nor a mental health professional, but I am a friendly shoulder to cry on, shall you need one. Unfortunately due to the coronavirus, and my heart condition putting me at risk, I am unable to participate in any protests at the moment. That being said, I support friends who are, and will stand by them all throughout.
Lastly, I would like to share my condolences for George Floyd’s family and friends, an innocent soul taken far too soon.
Daisies and Bruises is a positive site, and no abuse in any kind will be tolerated. Please comment and share kind words only, and please remember to support one another during this difficult and upsetting time.
