Quote from a retired Disney princess, who was one of the first Snow Whites. When you are hugging a child, always be the last one to go. You never know how long they need it. Sometimes even us 'big kids' need those hugs , too.
Everything you do is based on the choices YOU make. It's not your parents, your past relationships, your job, the economy . or your age that is to blame. YOU and only you are responsible for every decision and choice you make.
Funny but the truth. Some people should remember this when the first thing out of their mouth is, "That isn't racist." How would you know if you've never experienced it? Maybe you were taught it isn't but actually it is.
