43: Listen, Learn & Do Better. With Jeanne-Marie Paynel

Are you wondering what to do about the injustice that has been plaguing us for centuries? Listen in as I share my personal thoughts and invite you to join me on this important fight we must take on. This past week was a rude awakening and to be honest an embarrassment to how little awareness I have of the deep-rooted racial injustices that have been and are still perpetrated in the US, where I reside. Having been raised bi-culturally by open-minded liberal parents does not exempt me from ignorance. I realize I have a lot to learn, as I listen to stories and scholars to be able to do better by you, by me and all the children who deserve better from us. We must work together in creating a world where the treatment of people is never based on bias, whether it be the color of our skin, our sexual identity, our spiritual identity, our mental or physical differences. I hope and encourage you to join me in doing this important work of listening, learning, and doing better together. What we talked about: Sharing my personal thoughts and experience on the racial injustices that still exist today How my privilege is being able to learn about these injustices and not have experienced them first hand. Things to Remember “It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.” - Maya Angelou* “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” - Maya Angelou* “It doesn't matter how strong your opinions are.
