Every time a mommy blogger is told to “stay in her lane”, an Internet troll gets his wings.
Wait, is that the saying?
So then, what IS the proper “lane” for caregivers and parents raising the next generation in these very challenging times? I’ll tell you: every. freaking. lane. As someone who often heard “keep politics out of it” both at work and at home, sharing these thoughts feels like a real departure.
But is it truly a departure? Or have things just gotten so bad that we as human beings have no choice but to holler from the rooftops which side we’re on? Well, here we go.
We value truth. We dismiss lies.
Somewhere along the way, we all got a little lazy. We accepted word without research: exchanging facts for opinions and pundits for truth tellers. While we acknowledge that truth is nuanced and that bias exists, we will not allow outright lies any space on this platform.
Black Lives Matter
Not more than yours. Not more than police officers. Black lives matter AS MUCH AS yours. AS MUCH AS police officers. If that makes you uncomfortable, that is not our problem. It is yours. Our country needs to hear this truth more than ever — that was made abundantly clear on January 6th. And should have been abundantly clear before then.
