get in the way

“Sometimes you have to get in the way.” –Rep. John Robert Lewis

There are moments in life that cause us to move different than the majority. Sometimes we have to push against the current in order to initiate change. It might not be the popular move, but it’s the right move. In a society that is currently at war with itself, we have to get in the way. We have to promote self-awareness. We have to provide education. We have to be active participants in creating an atmosphere that will allow ALL to feel safe and welcome.
