Speaking as a person who has been on the outside of life looking in I know the value of being included. It’s my personal goal to be as inclusive as possible with people in my life. Being excluded from things sucks if you ask me. It’s human nature to want to be valued and needed.
One thing I have learned from my experience is that life is too short not to enjoy life. A lot of people on the fringes would like that same experience and consideration. So many times in my life I have heard about situations where people were having fun and I wasn’t a part of it. I want to be sure that people in my life know they are welcome and that they are valued and wanted.
Tonight is the annual rite of giving and receiving awards in the movie biz. Each year the Oscars let us dream a little and enjoy something fun.
Yeah, I admit I like seeing beautiful people give each other awards once or twice a year. It’s a very important part of the culture of our country. The Oscar’s offer a much needed diversion from the everyday. This year the election is playing out like a horror flick so we need something to take the politics off the screen for a few hours.
