My friend, along with other family members, went to his son’s wedding in Santa Fe, but noticed other gay couples had no family there to support them. Some couldn’t even provide a witness. He gladly helped out, even having his brother take photos for free.
I’m proud to know people like him.
Not all Christians are judgmental, scaremongering conservatives.
Not all atheists are smug, condescending jerks.
Not every homosexual man or woman is “checking you out.”
Not all Texans are truck driving, bible thumping George Bush supporters.
Not all teachers have your best interest at heart.
Not every man or woman who serves in the military is a hero.
No one depressed can just “stop being” sad.
No one homeless deserves to be that way.
Here’s the thing…
I don’t have the secret to life, I just have a few things that I live by to have a peaceful one.
One is knowing that assuming certain “kinds” of people are less complex than you are can lead to a sad and ignorant existence.
Every time I’m at work, I feel like I’m on the set of whatever the next adaptation of a YA novel is…
