I couldn't help but catch the news about Tyler Clementi.
Because it is moments like that, when I first read these stories, that I realize how much I hate people. People are mean and cruel and terrible.
Then I remember hate is what got us here in the first place.
I have a lovely family member who is a part of the LGBT community, and if anyone- ANYONE tried to hurt them I'd....Well I'd...
....but then I remember I would be fighting fire with fire. My cruelness. My aggression with words or fist makes me no better then those who torment.
I don't know what to say or do....or do. I am but one small person with one small blog.
And what do I have to say? Does it matter?
Then I remember it matters to me. And it matters to that lovely family member, who I would protect to the ends of the earth.
Being gay is okay. It is more then okay. It is normal. It is who a person is. And when someone uses what a person is to weaken, deface, manipulate them, it is a crime against humanity. It makes my heart break. It makes the world break.
Please remember our words and our actions have power, use them wisely.
I heard this song today and it was everything I wanted to share here....
