This was placed on my heart. There’s been a lot of arguing, division, accusations and assumptions about people’s motives. I’m realistic, i know everyone’s motives are not good and it’s important to be aware...but the truth always finds a way out. Good and bad.
People who know me, who have taken the time to get to know me and talk to me know that my only motive is to get this city right. To have a place where I can raise my child safely, where I can shop, enjoy the parks...you name it. I’ve lived here for over 40 years and #compton is my home. I want to see the narrative Change. I am Compton first...bottom line.
We can’t continue to tear each other down, we have to look within and continually evaluate if the way we are interacting and communicating with one another is productive and respectful. We can agree to disagree on things. That is ok! If we all thought alike it would not be a good thing. Everyone brings something to the table. Listen. Talk. Debate. Agree or disagree... move on. I saw a post the other day that talked about activists doing things for personal gain. I know for me, that’s not it but this group was mentioned. I want nothing from no one. If they want to bring up the fact that I’m a Commissioner that’s fine. It’s unpaid. It’s my free time that I will use to serve my community. It doesn’t benefit me personally. I will do what I can to get out there and work. To me action is everything.
In life you can’t please everyone and that’s ok. If you know in your heart that what you’re doing is right and just, then you’re solid. Let’s do better at lifting one another up and working together. We’re so much stronger together. #wecandobetter #therearegoodpeople #lifteachotherup
