The 40-Year-Old Photo That Gives Us A Reason To Smile.

"Children must be taught how to think, not what to think."

~ Margaret Mead 

At what point do we begin to judge one another?

To create these subtle distinctions which are based at times on nothing more than gender or race?

These cracks in humanity where we allow a space for mistrust, suspicion and doubt to grow?

In late July 1973, photographer Joseph Crachiola would snap an image that would become the cornerstone of many post-Zimmerman verdict discussions.

His image captured so brilliantly a moment before Prejudice settles in.

Read more about the story behind this one simple image, and how it is quickly becoming catalyst for much needed reflection and change.

And, just for today?

Take note of the moments you feel yourself judging others. And, in those moments, instead of offering criticism ~ find a way instead, to offer your heart.

Because, my dears... my most beautiful friends... this world, so very much needs it.

It's when our hearts work together, that we are able to effect the greatest of change... 

Namaste, and much love on this day...
