In the young mind and heart of a child, there’s a sort of “wet cement” and the impressions that are made there harden over time. Racism, in any form, is a learned trait (you never see infants or toddlers avoiding each other in the nursery because of skin tone). Whenever we categorize a group of people as a nameless, faceless mass of color (whether the color be white, brown or something else), we’re stripping away the humanity of people and committing the sin of racism and we’re teaching our kids to do the same.
Racism hurts people, but we can’t seem to get past it. We can’t seem to find ways to have honest, healthy conversations about issues of race. We can’t celebrate a sense of unified brotherhood through our beautiful differences -

Don't kill the dream - execute it! "The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win."
Life always offers us a second chance... It's called TOMORROW! We need to trust our soul ... It knows the way.
Never give up on you or anyone else. Fight, fight, fight! Refuse to take NO for an answer. Especially from yourself. Our inner voice will try to tell us NO WAY, WE CAN”T, WE WILL FAIL. We have to rise above our inner voice. It’s only echo’s from others in our past. Dig deep inside and find YOU, your soul that refuses to take NO for an answer.
Henry Ford: While Ford is today known for his innovative assembly line and American-made cars, he wasn't an instant success. In fact, his early businesses failed and left him broke five times before he founded the successful Ford Motor Company.
Lucille Ball: During her career, Ball had thirteen Emmy nominations and four wins, also earning the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Kennedy Center Honors. Before starring in I Love Lucy, Ball was widely regarded as a failed actress and a B movie star. Even her drama instructors didn't feel she could make it, telling her to try another profession. She, of course, proved them all wrong.
Oprah Winfrey: Most people know Oprah as one of the most iconic faces on TV as well as one of the richest and most successful women in the world. Oprah faced a hard road to get to that position, however, enduring a rough and often abusive childhood as well as numerous career setbacks including being fired from her job as a television reporter because she was "unfit for tv."
Stephen King: The first book by this author, the iconic thriller Carrie, received 30 rejections, finally causing King to give up and throw it in the trash. His wife fished it out and encouraged him to resubmit it, and the rest is history, with King now having hundreds of books published the distinction of being one of the best-selling authors of all time.
Walt Disney: Today Disney rakes in billions from merchandise, movies and theme parks around the world, but Walt Disney himself had a bit of a rough start. He was fired by a newspaper editor because, "he lacked imagination and had no good ideas." After that, Disney started a number of businesses that didn't last too long and ended with bankruptcy and failure. He kept plugging along, however, and eventually found a recipe for success that worked.
I love y'all xoxo, Ruby Gettinger

When I am silent, I have thunder hidden inside. Rumi
It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you!
I love y'all,
Don't ever give up on you or anyone else! Fight to live your God given destiny!

Hi y’all, I am trying to put my faith, and not my fears, in charge. It is one of the hardest things for me to do when a lot of change is happening around me. I am trying hard to trust God and people through this, and I am finding my biggest obstacle "change". I am growing up spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically, and this is going way out of my comfort zone. I am truly going to let go for 30 days. Trust God and my new team while wrestling with my demons, fears, failures, the messy and going to keep rising above it all. The wind of change has never been a familiar friend to me it usually is a familiar feeling that always brings disaster. Going to let go and trust in the wind of change that keeps blowing my way. I believe it is time I surrender! YIKES!!!
I trust that my soul has a plan, and even if I can’t see it completely, I have to believe that everything will unfold as it is supposed to be. #TrustGod
