If you haven’t seen this video, friends, as an LGBT person please do and please do pass it along on your social networks. I can’t explain just how perfect this video is in words as well as the tears that it has brought to my eyes can. It’s so important, you must watch it. I promise that you’ll love it and may thank me for it. I’m very thankful to a friend for passing it along to me, and of course I too thank Panti for being so strong, as all of us are because we have to be.with love,
I feel so oppressed because…
My parents tell me how to live my life.
My family tells me how to live my life.
My teachers tell me how to live my life.
My friends tell me how to live my life.
My bullies tell me how to live my life.
My social status tells me how to life my life.
My government tells me how to live my life.
My skin color tells me how to live my life.
My body tells me how to live my life.
This list can go on and on and on.
…and this all feels so oppressive.
I cooked up yummy pork cutlets. I’m also making sauteed kale with lots of garlic and some quinoa tabbouleh. Who’s hungry?!
The struggle you’re in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow. Don’t give up!
Hey friends, wishing you a beautiful day. Remember, be yourself - it’ll inspire someone else to do the same, and that’s awesome. Be awesome!
