You are gay?
How do you know?
Are you sure?
Actor Neil Patrick Harris came out publicly and it created a stir in the media and Hollywood. Neil and his partner are happy with their twins. I’m seeing children as young as 12 y/o professing that they are gay. These children are victimized by children of heterosexual couples. Some even take their life because they feel that they would be safer in death. How sad.
Life is a gift. How you live it is your prerogative. What makes you happy? The things that makes me happy are not the same things that make you happy. Deviation from societal norm is extremely frowned upon.
Human rights are extremely important, but sometimes we can be a bit biased when assessing certain situation that questions human rights. If we spend more time embracing the things that connect us instead of the things that separates us, wouldn’t society be a better place?
I sound like an idealist :)
Let me leave you with two quotes:
It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.
— Maya Angelou
Internal peace is an essential first step to achieving peace in the world. How do you cultivate it? It’s very simple. In the first place by realizing clearly that all mankind is one, that human beings in every country are members of one and the same family.
— The Dalai Lama
As usual, feel free to share your thoughts.
