Birmingham, we have too long suffered from low self-esteem. However, the events of this week, while not wished for by any means, have given us a bit of a blank slate. It’s a chance to “pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again.” In this new chapter, maybe we can arm ourselves with hard lessons learned. We know now that it is okay to dream big dreams for this place as long as we temper those dreams with what is right and good. We must hold each other accountable. Together let’s find a healthy, realistic view of our community – our city and our state. Then, let’s respect ourselves enough to believe, care, vote, and affect change. It may not happen overnight, but it’s a start.
