As we initiate conversations, I believe that we need to start the important conversations within the walls of our schools. We need to make this conversation part of our mentoring programs. These conversations need to be part of our churches and other organization. Not after the fact, but before the action begins.
Right now, as we begin to transition back to a normal way of life, we need to prepare to explain and teach our youth about the actions they have seen all over the television the past couple of weeks. We need to have the discussions of how they can contribute to bridge this gap.
We need to bridge the gap between the generations. We need to enhance teaching of love and togetherness. Not only the conversation, but continue to build on the actions it takes to drown out the kinds of mistreatment and hatred we continue to experience. Not only for one color of people, but for all people. We must continue to make steps forward and not backwards.
