I find that when I’m feeling pressure in my personal or professional life, or the events of the world have the future looking bleak, I turn to my passions as a release.
With the horror that is effecting people in Houston and other parts of the world, I’ve never felt so lucky to have this blog and my podcast Ethnically Correct to fall back on.
We took a bit of a hiatus over the past few months after the election to kind of process how we were feeling and I think the time off just further solidified the importance of this platform.
If you need a bit of a refresher, Ethnically Correct is a podcast created by 3 friends all from different ethnic backgrounds – a gay Latino male, a Muslim American woman and myself a Black woman, we all come to the table with different ways of viewing the world based on our ethnic backgrounds and we deal with specific topics from that view-point. Our hope is to start the conversation because it seems these conversations have been very difficult to have in America.
Now back to this episode…with all the loss occurring around us we wanted to talk about the concept of loss and how that concept has effected us in the different area’s of our lives. We reminisce on personal loss, fleeting American ideals and challenge listeners with a bold homework assignment.
Please take a listen today and add to the conversation. Tell us about a personal loss that effected or still effects you today, how have you gotten through it or why does it seem hard to if you haven’t.
I end this blog post with a challenge… be brave enough to start a conversation that matters!
