I run a girl empowerment group for minority high school females. Answered Prayers Cross came in to do a presentation and have the girls create. I mentioned how wonderful I thought one of the completed hearts was and the instructor said – “It’s yours!”. My daughter is half white and half Nigerian. In our home, love truly is color blind. When my daughter first began to understand that a racial divide exists in our country it deeply disturbed her. I told her that she was living proof that the world is healing. That she should be proud of her coffee with cream skin because she is an example of what we aspire to when we aspire to peace. She enjoys being a role model for something positive, instead of feeling caught up in other people’s past pain. Love is love, no matter the color.
