Birthday reflections

So I turn 26 in two weeks. I always get weird around my birthdays, this year especially.

since turning 25 my step father died, I finished my masters, moved to another state for a job and then quit that job, started a new job that puts me into middle class hell, and cut off all contact with my alcoholic, mentally Ill mother.

I am also very seriously wedding planning with the dude.

I am not who I thought I would be at 26. I guess it doesn’t matter who I thought I would be, I guess it only matters that I am beginning my 26th year a very different person than I ever imagined I could be.

Today in Solidarity (9.27.14): The Lost Voices campground since Mike Brown’s murder was ransacked by police… so petty. #staywoke #farfromover

Don’t know who the Lost Voices are yet? They’re the youth brigade on the frontlines of Ferguson, leading the fight for justice for Mike Brown. (Many of those tweets you see on my posts are from LV.) Yesterday, their campsite was raided without notice. These young leaders have been under constant attack from police since protests began, but yesterday was a clear intimidation move. Well guess what— Lost Voices will not be intimidated or stopped.  Please make sure you’re showing them your love and support. Consider donating to their efforts today.

Let’s remember, Jesus was a Jewish man of color, born homeless to an unwed teenager, who spent his formative years as an illegal immigrant before returning to his home country to hang out with twelve men, prostitutes, and socially untouchable tax collectors while he taught a radical social doctrine of equality, love, and forgiveness that included paying taxes, free healthcare, and the sharing of resources within a community.
