#23 - If you see something, say something / by Nameh and Sitara

*warning for strong language and discussion of racial injustice*

Is there a time in your life when you were at your best and it was time to make a huge change? What are some ways that you have pushed yourself out of your comfort zone? Racial inequality and injustice are running rampant in our society and we refuse see it and ignore it. We step out of our comfort zone and Sitara shares Michel Harriot's piece, written following the not-guilty verdict for the police officer who murdered Philandro Castile. We share our frustration, sadness and commitment to speaking up and stepping in, when we can. Nameh shares about a time that she set a boundary of being unwilling to tolerate injustice from a family member.

We, as human beings, are all connected. We feel this so strongly. When one of us is hurting, we all hurt. We see the horrific injustice around Philandro Castile's murder and we say his name, we will never forget.

Sitara shares Melanie DeMore's song "I Pray For Us All," which has given her a lot of comfort in the last few days.

Be sure to hear to listen to our shout out to our dear friend and new Deacon triple D at the end of the show.
