Your Words Run Deep!

People keep asking “what will it take to end these mass shootings?” I have an idea. It is not a quick fix but it starts with a change in our everyday behavior. It starts with US!

Attention Adults – each time you tell an ‘off-color’ joke or make a snide comment that degrades women, belittles a person because of the color of skin or birthplace, makes fun of a person because of their special needs or demeans another human being because of who they love…the young people around are listening! YOU are planting a seed that will grow and can grow to a point that murder is the choice thay make. These mass shooting are by people who were taught and influenced to believe that other people are below them because of race, gender or sexual orientation. They were not born with that hate!

When you are trying to be ‘funny’ at the expense of another persons self-worth…you ARE NOT FUNNY; when you chant – ‘Send Them Back’ at a political rally because you disagree with a persons political views YOU ARE WRONG; when your religion says a wife should ‘obey’ her husband, YOU ARE CRUEL….you are teaching these beautiful and innocent children HOW to hate and HOW to discriminate!

We cannot be shocked by the actions of these murderers but we MUST BE DISGUSTED by them and vow to change how we speak, how we act and what we teach our children!

About strengthinmoms

I am the proud mom of two beautiful boys.  During my first pregnancy I exercised somewhat but didn’t know how to adjust to my changing body.  Eventually I just stopped and let my pregnancy take over because I thought the aches and pains were telling me to stop.  When I found out I was pregnant with my second child, I was told I needed to stop teaching cardio kickboxing and go easy during bootcamp.  I was very frustrated and confused.  I was pregnant, not injured?!  So I did my research and found out that I was right - I CAN do all of the things I was doing!  I just needed to be in tune with my body and listen to it.  I maintained my fitness levels, my core and total body strength and my relaxed state of mind.  I knew that being a mom did not mean letting go of who I am - a Strong and Fit Woman.  I deserved an hour a day to focus on my mind & body and ultimately my baby and family as well. * My passion in life is to help moms get fit and maintain their strength throughout their pregnancy and beyond.  * I am the owner of Strength in Moms - Prenatal & Postpartum Personal Training in Atlanta, GA
