I see you.
I hear you.
I stand with you.
What can I do to help?
I heard these words spoken today in a video sent to me by a friend. These words resonate deeply with me.
I am trying to figure out how I can help. I want to help. I accept help for my son with severe autism. I am so thankful for the employees who care for him every single day at his day program. The majority of those employees are African American.
I had a conversation yesterday morning with the driver of the van that safely gets Brandon to/from day program. I thanked him for what he does. I told him I appreciate him. I told him I hope he is safe. He had tears in his eyes and thanked me for my words.
Stay well, my friends. Stay safe, my friends.
