Others have had a harder time with that.
Cindy heard the same question a lot when she first married Jonathan — what’s it like being married to a white man?
“What’s it like being married to a human?” she says she’d respond. “Love sees no color.”
Cindy is black, and Jonathan is white. To them, that’s never mattered. Still, they’ve dealt with their fair share of disapproval.
“You can’t be responsible for people’s ignorance,” Cindy says, “but you can be responsible for how you respond.”
Cindy and Jonathan choose to respond with love.
They’ve seen love transform people’s opinions of them. They hope the world will be kinder as their son grows up.
“I don’t want people to look at the color of his skin,” Jonathan says. “I want them to see his heart, to see his character.”
They know they can’t control what others do.
So, they’ll teach their son the right way, how to answer hate with love, and that love knows no color.
