    grown up without racisim, too.  My husband, on the other hand, grew up in west Texas, in full blown racist mentality.  What is wonderful about him, he was open to accepting others for being people.  I took the time to teach him that there are bad people, but one bad person does not mean the entire race should be villified.  Stereotyping is the wrong way to go and he has learned the lesson.  Today, 21 years later, I am proud of the man he has become and the way he embraces all people and judges them not for the color of their skin, their gender, or their sexual orientation, but for the content of the character.  Thanks MLK, for teaching us that most valuable lesson.

    being mindful and keepin' it real
