    Hahahaha on the pay phone!
    My own kids when they were in hgih school (classes of 2006 and 2008) would call me on the pay phone by the gym at school when they’re practices were over so I could come get them. I would receive a collect call from “Anita Ride”

    ON a serious note, have added many of the books on the reading list to my books to read list. Am slowly working through some of the articles on it.

    My son was one who pointed out to me many years ago that his minority friends had conversations with their parents about how to act when the police stop them and wanted to know why I hadn’t. It was honestly because I didn’t worry about that. That conversation with him was an eye opener. Started me thinking then about privilege. Still learning, but will keep on learning.

    Thank you for sharing, Tracy! I’m glad you are speaking out and taking a stand against the insidious racial injustice in our country. The work is uncomfortable for sure, but as I keep reminding myself when I feel overwhelmed: I am so privileged to only have to learn about racism rather than experience it my entire life. We must keep going!!!

    Your blog offers both solace and resources during this time, and for that I am so grateful. xo
