I am proud to be a product of the liberal media that informed me that there is a world out there bigger than I am and people who share this rock who mean as much to God as I do. If you know me then you know I am who I am because of those influences.
Being real is important. There’s a point to it. You never have to worry about sorting out who you are in everyday life. Authenticity is something you have to work at. Allowing others to see who you are is a good thing. The past few months have shown me that not filtering yourself can be cathartic.
Discrimination is wrong. It is something that speaks to the worst in people and organizations. When it comes to making a living being LGBTQ folks should not be afraid of losing their rights to life, liberty and happiness. We are in the 21st century and the fact that discrimination is a problem for so many is quite sad. I hope for the very best today as the US Supreme Court decides some issues regarding LGBTQ discrimination. It’s time freedom is open for all.
You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith, and hope.Thomas Merton
