Something AMAZING happened today!!
So whenever we have a gathering at school, at the end they always say "Does anybody have any announcements or anything they'd liked to say?"... People get up and take the mic and say whatever, usually about upcoming basketball games or whatever. But TODAY this girl walks up, a 7th grade girl, must've been 12 years old, and takes the microphone. She looked more serious and determined than I've seen anybody look in a long time. She said,
"So you all know that it's hard to keep secrets." (The crowd murmurs in confused agreement.) "Well. I'm not going to hide this any more. I'm a lesbian."
And then she marched right off the stage again, just like that. The whole school cheered. I almost cried. It was fucking brilliant.
