Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late

GUBfriends, 

Our hearts have been heavy all week. Both Marcus and I have sat and discussed every event. We’ve watched in horror the lives taken and the hate that keeps rising in our world. We’ve lived in fear and heightened anxiety as nothing seems to be changing.  We feel heartbroken that yet more violence and lives have been taken this year. We need change in our world and it starts with us and our communities. It’s time to have the conversations, take action, and get educated! 

It starts with us! Don’t wait until it’s too late!
