SOCIAL JUSTICE COLUMN

By Beth Grimm

2020 became the year of insight for me. My life before that was wrapped up in the necessities of life for a family and after divorce, as a single mother. I was raised in a "whitebread" environment and never got involved in politics or causes like racism or gender inequality. I just made my way through with blinders on to social justice issues. But things began to unfold in 2020, life altering events. Historic changes, a pandemic, monumental weather events causing widespread devastation, self-centered leadership of the country, and rampant racism. I could not look away any longer. So I started writing about these things, hoping to make some small contribution to thought, growth and order.
