Marrietta, GA – Our sphere of influence and BLM
We influence others in many different ways. Some have broad spheres and others have small personal interactions within their reach. As we witness the actions of the Black Lives Matter influencers, remember that their choices will have an impact on society. There will be positive influence and negative influence that will affect the lives of a generation at least.
I think of humble men who have achieved great influence such as Nelson Mandela or Mahatma Gandhi. Actions and accomplishments affect our sphere of influence today. Our leaders today have an opportunity to have a positive impact on our world and encourage meaningful change providing hope and deliberate action.
But even our children have their own spheres of influence. From the moment of birth, children affect the lives of parents, teachers and caregivers. We, as parents and adults have a responsibility to teach civility, and encourage equality while teaching discernment and bias. Yes, we all have bias built into our DNA from thousands of years of human development but race should not be a bias to be embraced or encouraged.
We are God’s children. We are all unique, and we all have our own sphere of influence. Use your choices and biases wisely, and affect positive change on others.
