I am grateful for this reminder of my privilege. I have been "unpacking" my white privilege since I was 21 years old, and now, with my work in the field of compassionate integrity, I remember that compassion is the willingness to look at suffering and the impulse to do something to alleviate it. It does not require I actually take action, but it does remind me not to look away or don't turn the channel. I have become increasingly aware of how privileged I am to have this choice, and that comes with deep reverence and gratitude. Also, when in a state of gratitude, I can more readily respond with equanimity and grace, both internal and in my daily life. Thank you for this awareness! I am so grateful for nothing!
