(N.A.H.) Receives Beautiful Blogger Award!
Today, my Blog: Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian (N.A.H.) received the Beautiful Blogger Award!
In commenting on one of my recent blog posts, Tamara said:
“Relando! I feel like you are calling me out! . . . Thank you . . . for reminding me that, no different than my clients, that I, too, get comfortable with my stances – political, social, physical, relational and otherwise. And, of course, that self-reflection that I am always asking and nudging others to engage in is also available to me. It’s telling, isn’t it, . . . the places we find ourselves cluelessly avoiding?
Relando, I don’t stop in here nearly often enough to tell you how much I appreciate your nudges and call outs to create the world we are meant to live in. Thank you.
I have nominated you for The Beautiful Blog Award as a token of my appreciation and as a way to introduce my readers and others to your work. It is necessary. It is valued. And, it is the only way that we move our world forward.
Blessings to you on your journey.”
I’m honored by your thoughtfulness, and will keep these words in mind when I’m feeling stuck.

7 More Beautiful Blogs
Dr Martin Luther King once said that “true peace is not the absence of tension, it is the presence of justice.” Working toward equity is no easy task, but these blogs definitely make an impact in their own ways, working through the tension on their path to reach that goal. I present them in no particular order.
Uptown Notes—Dr. L’Heureux Dumi Lewis-McCoy
Teach Peace Now—Teach Peace Now
WanderingInLove—Dr. Sarah Jackson
FAAN Mail (Fostering Activism and Alternatives Now!)—FAAN Mail Team

One of the beautiful things I find about struggle is that without it, we cannot grow.I hope you learn from these writers and activists as much as I have.
Again, I say thanks to you, Tamara for the kind affirmation! This exercise has inspired me to build a list of other great blogs and resources as well! Readers can expect to see it some time in the future.
Wishing you all Grace & Peace,
From Aspiring Humanitarian, Relando Thompkins, MSW
