Finding Common Ground on #GoodNewsTuesday

Hello peeps, life is strange. That is one lesson I have learned in my nearly half a century of life.

While many take part in the social media black out to support black people in the US, I felt I need to share a black man’s mission that is controversial to say the least.

Today I want to share a TEDx talk by Daryl Davis. He is a jazz musician who played with Chuck Berry and other famous people. But the reason why he is controversial is his mission to find common ground with members of the KKK.

He has managed to bring some of the KKK members to leave the organisation with befriending them and finding common ground. It is utterly unimaginable to me how someone can have the strength to be so open-minded and curious to get close to people who are so hateful.

But I also believe that this is the only way to change any rift between humans. Please make up your own mind with my Good News Story for this week.

This post takes part in โ€œGood News Tuesdayโ€ inspired by JoAnna on โ€œAnything Possibleโ€. I found this story over at the Good News Network. Please head over to both and find more uplifting news.

Happy Tuesday to you all despite everything!!!!!

Just one more thing before you go: The hospital that is treating me is fundraising for a dedicated breast cancer unit which would allow same-day diagnosis and better premises for patients and staff.

Please, if you can spare a little money hop over to their Just Giving Page and give as little or much as you can. Or share the page on your social media. Your support means a lot to me! Thank you very much.

Thanks my dears, for staying with me until the end. I appreciate your presence. Please stay safe, stay kind and remember that you rock!
