Like you, we’ve been overwhelmed by recent events that have clearly demonstrated the racism still thriving in the United States. We’ve been overwhelmed many times before by similar events, but somehow the last year seems to have dug deeper into our hearts and caused us to more fully take note of the injustices all around us. We’ve felt it more viscerally and recognized our need to self-educate and become more proactive.
Although we’d always considered ourselves lovers of all people and believers in a liberality of spirit, we became profoundly, uncomfortably aware of our lack of awareness. It humbled us. It distressed us. We are grateful for the opportunity to evolve — to repent, if you will — and to participate in being repairers of the breach.
Here at Gathre, we’ve spent the last year in listen-and-learn mode. We’ve tried to learn and keep our hearts open. We still have much to discover and take on board, but we are grateful to be better informed and more intentionally, actively involved in sharing privilege and opportunity. We will continue to seek knowledge, to grow, to evolve, and to become better. We can’t change the world, but we have dedicated ourselves to improving our little corner of it.
