I am coming to a conclusion that I need and crave the company of like-minded people. Defending ones beliefs and opinions constantly is exhausting. Sure its good to have people who challenge you but I am kind of weary of the fear some have these days. It is really hard to be a progressive in a place where some folks are holding on to the old ways in a very aggressive way. I try to be open-minded but sometimes you have to make your stand to advance the cause of the least of these, the less fortunate, the person who is marching to the beat of their own drummer, the LGBTQ person, the people who want access to life, liberty and happiness. Yes I am a liberal and I wear that title proudly. May God bless and keep us all as we each try to figure this thing called life out.
