This morning another political piece of news feels devastating. And in all purposes it is. My 6 year old daughter even understood what was going on. She’s absorbing everything in and we can’t avoid educating her about politics at this years age because it’s everywhere.
The thing is I’ve noticed after Brexit that we just carry on and normal. Since when in my stubborn nature do I just lay down and accept this? Is it in our nature to just accept defeat?
For me, this morning at least, it’s given me some fire. I cannot bring my children up in a world that is so torn apart by hatred. BUT I CAN CHOOSE. I am not bringing my children up in anime full of hatred but one of love, one of acceptance and one where they feel they can make the changes they need in the world.
Small steps have managed to change the world for now. And that’s just it isn’t it? Small steps and maybe WE Can change it back. It’s right now, you can do something so that it does not their future too much. If I want a different future for them then it’s my responsibility to stand up for why they should be getting from the world and from those that run it.
As the world enters more uncertainly this morning think about what you want and what you can do about it. Doesn’t matter if you have children or not we can lol make these small steps into a giant leap. It’s not undoable. 4 years is not that long and yes we may have ruins to build back up together but do you really want to stand back on those sidelines doing nothing and watching it fall or do you want to make a change. I won’t stop fighting for what’s right, for me and my children but for you too.
