Thinking Intentionally and Critically About How Racism Impact You and the World:
 
You are a sacred temple of life. Each person from all identities, cultures, faiths and social 
locations, must interdependently share the earth with one another. We must love ourselves. 
We must love our neighbors as we love ourselves. Think about it, each of us represents various 
communities. However, if you are injured and need a blood transfusion, it is not medically required that the blood you need to save your life has to be transfused from a person whose skin complexion is the same as yours; in order to keep living, you need to receive blood from a person who has your same blood type, not your same skin color. Each human being represents God’s gift of life. Each person’s body is a sacred temple created to equitably share love, peace and justice. 

Please, every day, deliberately live justly with compassion and integrity for yourself and all 
members of humanity.
