We can no longer pretend a pandemic doesn't exist in our country. The hateful rhetoric and the violence which follows it can not be normalized - it would be irresponsible for us to allow it. 

It is time to engage in authentic conversation followed by meaningful action. Band together. Embrace the discomforts, the questions which arise. Encourage curiosity, growth, acceptance of those that are not like us.
