Walking out of your own graduation because the commencement speaker goes against your core values it takes courage. I think the message that Notre Dame sent today was one that needed to be made. When LGBTQ students and their families are in peril by those who seek to do them harm and to take their rights as citizens to marry whom they choose and to live as straight people have for years something needs to be done, non-violent protests are the right thing. Those Fighting Irish who walked out win the day, they win with hearts full. Love is love!
After the Chattanooga High School – Center For Creative Arts received their diplomas the students sung this song together. We need more dreamers and doers in the world. It’s truly inspiring and resonated with me to continue dreaming about having a future that includes everyone.
I arose at 7:30 this morning and cooked breakfast, did a load of laundry and a few other things before getting ready for church. Knowing me I’m going to take a nap this afternoon, because it’s Sunday after all. The weather seems right for a chill afternoon at home. Have a great day everyone. Grace, peace and love.
