I would like to think that as a country we are progressing toward true equality for everyone. However, recent media events surrounding gay rights say otherwise. Sadly, there are some people, just hell bent on sticking to old antiquated ways of thinking.
News flash… the world is changing and isn’t going to stop because groups of people aren’t willing to change with it. Get on board and accept the inevitable or suffer miserably trying to beat something that is much bigger than you are.
The thing is, a heart doesn’t know the difference between a male and female. It doesn’t know the color of one’s skin or his or her race or origin. It only knows LOVE, unconditional and abundant LOVE and it recognizes itself in other people be it man or woman. Instead of preaching hate and judgment, we should be encouraging people to love and accept each other just the way they are. There are wars raging around the world because individuals refuse to consider that not everyone is like them. It is a major setback for mankind.
Our goal should be progressing as a human race not backsliding to an uneducated, hypocritical, holier than thou point of view. We are all created equally. We all have the right to live in a way that we choose provided it doesn’t hurt or maim anyone. We have the right to love who and how we choose despite what anyone says. We have the right as human beings to live beside one another in harmony and peace.
Stop the ignorance and look beyond what you physically see in other people. You will find a human being, a soul with a heart that desires the same things in life everyone is searching for… Peace, love, happiness and the freedom to choose!
What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart, oh, no, it’s curved like a road through mountains. ~ Tennessee Williams, A Streetcar Named Desire, 1947
