With all the news of suicide and bullying and beating and anger and hatred; we sometimes forget that the world isn’t all full of hate and ill will. We would do well to look for those stories that inspire and give us hope and make us believe.
I wish I could hug each member of this family and say thank you personally. Thank you for being a light, a beacon of hope and acceptance. I wish each person in the world could experience the kind of compassion and support this young man is recieving. Imagine. Imagine a world where everyone was made to feel OK for being their authentic self.
