Whenever something big happens and I start to feel super sad / angry / down / helpless, it always helps me to create something that has a positive message to it.  It might sound silly, but forcing myself to find a positive message during a less-than-positive time makes me a little more hopeful.  I wish I didn't ever feel the need to make these things.  But here we are again.

I don't think I need to tell you why racism is bad.  I hate that I have to explain to my almost 7-year old what racism even is.  But I feel like the people on the other side of the fence aren't exactly holding anything back around their kids.  So we talk to him.  A lot.  And let him ask questions.  It's our duty to teach Louis about other points of views and hold open conversations on why putting down another gender / race / orientation / religion just because they're different than you is not okay.  These aren't conversations I'd ever imagined having with my sweet, giant-hearted boy.  But we feel that they are important.  So we do it.

To help you push some positive vibes out into the world, I'm offering this quote to you as well.  Do what you'd like with it, just keep in mind that I'm giving these out in good faith.  Please do not share the files, claim them as your own, or profit off of my design in any way.  They are for PERSONAL USE ONLY.
