We All Belong

What a statement of hope.

If I’m completely honest, I’ve suffered from chronic isolation for most of my life. My natural or first reaction is to perceive myself apart from, rather then a part of. As a psychologist the maladaptive nature of this perception don’t scape me, and years of therapy and self care have provided me with what feels like miraculous healing. In the last few years I’ve developed connections and community. Gradually, and progressively  I experience the freedom to be a part of. Its liberating.

Today, many of us from distinct and diverse backgrounds are joining in connection and forming community around the protesting hope that “we all belong.”

The Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition has organized a state wide day of action to affirm and protest this hope, “we all belong.” In this hope I plan to attend here in Nashville.
