In the past few years, there has been an eye-opening experience for most. A shocking revelation to say the least. The outrage, the anger, the sense of confusion is something that has always bothered people of color and has always been a speaking point in some place and time, but now it's visual. Now, in the age of voyeurism, the speculation of hate is truly seen. The question is, now that there is an "acceptance of hate", how much further will it go?
In the years that's I've worked in operations as an Admin/Office Assistant, I've seen this hierarchy, a totem pole of sorts of office politics that I've always noticed, but has now turned into dread starting with the number one culprit: Respect.
What is in that pretty head of yours? Is it peace? The sounds of waves crashing against the sharp stones. The soothing melody of chirping of birds and chimes ringing with the cool summer breeze.

Valentine's Day. Val-en-tine's Day. Hallmark holiday. Flying baby in a diaper shooting arrow hearts day. I don't know, I'm very indifferent about this holiday.
Fear is a powerful emotion. It's a bitch is what it is. It is such an immobilizing feeling. Debilitating. It stuns you in a way that you didn't even know it affected you so. Fear is like a Boggart in Harry Potter, an unidentified mass that can shift into anything, but unfortunately saying the word ridiculous won't make the fear go away. So what will?
