Yesterday's table read for @huntertremayneactor
s screenplay "Blood of an Englishman", was a dream come true as an actor playing his lead Foland, an incredible script of a sassy #bame
detective solving a murder mystery 🧐 .
Greater than this was the contribution of every member of our cast and acting team...
Facilitated by @luci_lenox
humanitarian and creator of #BeInspired
which I now recognize as a movement based on embracing diversity in all respects, and therefore enabling each script to be brought to life without prejudice or barriers. Isn't that something, especially in these times?
Until lastnight I wasn't fully conscious of the deeper relevance of this group and it's contribution to the solution of some problems humanity is currently facing. .
Collectively and as individuals we contribute to hierarchies & division based on factors which are unfair. Now we're becoming more aware, the next step is finding solutions and becoming part of them.
We all have our prejudices, neuroscience teaches these form part of our limbic system, which as animals and tribes folk helped us survive attack. .
Letting them go is a lifes work, but had I lived a different life without others tolerating me inspite of our differences, I might not be alive today, and to be frank, you might not be either... .
This is why the onus on working together to find a solution is on all of us, each individual in our international community.
I learned yesterday that my dreams can come true, and even greater than that that our dreams can, if only we focus on the solutions together and embrace them when they come 🥰😃💛
Special thanks to my mentor without whose guidance this past week I wouldn't have been able to see beauty and find the joy in each challenge.
And to my closest friends, without whom I'd be lost.
Let's rise to these challenges together fam 😁🥰💛
