I'm a joker. I'm sarcastic. I'm silly, sensitive, clumsy, flakey, tough, and mighty strong. I like a good joke as much as the next person. I analyze people regularly to understand where they've been and where they're coming from. I stand up for myself. I say my piece, sometimes when people don't want to hear it. I listen to people, even when I don't agree. I challenge. I debate. I ask questions. I let people down. I make people proud. I learn something new every day. I grow every day. I'm always striving to make a better me that I can be!
So, with all that being said, in light of all the social strain that is going on in America because of the Ferguson trial and riots, I want to share the best thing that happen to me yesterday, Thanksgiving 2014:
I am incredibly thankful. Thankful for all the amazing people I got to run next to yesterday. Thankful because no matter what race, color, religion, gender, body type or sexual orientation, we ran next to each other with smiles and PRIDE. We were prideful because we were all striving for the same thing, to Run for the Hungry. Thousands of neighbors sweat next each other, high-fived each other, pushed each other along, and hugged each other. I loved every minute of it because, THAT is how every day should be!
