I workout in Chinatown. My trainer, who is a viral testosterone-driven millennial, puts me through grueling workouts for someone my age.
So to make me feel better, he tells me to throw the medicine ball as hard as I can – & imagine it’s his face. We laugh but I feel vindicated.
Well little did I know, there was this precious mature woman mimicking ALL of the exercises my trainer was putting me through. AND she was CRUSHING them!!! #somuchforageism
She didn’t have a ball so I gave her mine & indicated she should slam it HARD & pretend it was my trainer’s face!! She laughed. So we played with the ball. My trainer took this footage.
When I think about the shooting in ATL that killed 8 victims (mostly women) at 3 different spas, I think of Emma Lazarus’ accurate quote: “Until we are all free, none of us are free.”
Not only are we not free, we are not safe until.
So I stand with my Asian Family against hate. White Supremacy is the enemy of EVERYONE who’s NOT a White Supremacist/Racist/Bigot.
We stand together. #stopasianhate
