Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a double Alumnus of The University of Texas at San Antonio as well as a former staff member. During my time there I had the opportunity to not only touch the lives of many students but also to have many students touch my life in ways that I could have never imagined.
I still follow a lot of those students on multiple social media sites and every now and then a true gem comes along and needs to be shared. One particular individual that I have stayed in touch with is Brian Mannas from the Class of 2013 who has gone on do to some really great things to include being an AmeriCorps VISTA Volunteer and a member of the Peace Corps and is now a Paid Canvassing Director for the campaign of James Talarico for State Representative in Austin, Texas.
Yesterday Brian posted a video that is an important conversation starter entitled “Let’s talk about #BlackLivesMatter“, he did an excellent job of stating some very important factors from his point of view. I hope you will take a moment to watch the video.
With his permission I am reposting to my social media feeds as well as here. That’s what’s in My Rattled Cage, thanks for stopping by!!
