Teaching Tolerance

FreedomUniversal's picture

It is very rare that I have the opportunity to read a piece of writing that sticks with me, that makes me think well beyond the initial reading and well into the future. Tonight I have been fortunate enough to do just that. The piece of writing I read is from a gay gentleman, who has lived a pretty rewarding and satisfying life where he has had ample opportunities, yet the one thing he truly has his heart set on he cannot complete and that is marriage.

I recommend that anyone within the LGBT community and beyond read the words this man has to share.

I actually just looked

I actually just looked around for the 'like' button. Clearly I spend too much time Facebooking...

Anyway, I like this a lot, because it is powerful. He does so many very American things, and so many positive things, and yet he can't count such a basic thing as marriage as one of them, no matter how much he may want to. Absolutely ridiculous.
And I've never thought about tolerance that way, but now I think I agree. Very thought provoking, thanks. 8)

Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?
