Have you ever asked yourself this question: “I want to know what it’s like to _____________? You probably have. I have. It’s a fun game to play. Typically when we (family) are in the car we like to imagine what it would be like to be a millionaire. This is serious stuff to us. Before long, the kids are joining in the conversation. We talk about the vacations we want to take, the people we are going to help and of course Oliver talks about his mustang and the speakers because that’s what’s really important, right? We talk about:
- Opening up an animal sanctuary.
- Building an organic farm.
- Buying a house in California.
- Helping our family and true friends (not the ones that come along when they discover that you have money).
We laugh, dream and are optimistic that we can make this dream into a reality. One of the greatest gifts that we have been given is the gift of imagination. What are your dreams?
Let’s get a little more serious.
There are many in our society who would like to know what it’s like to be loved, accepted, treated fairly and with kindness. Unfortunately, this group of people is ostracized by most, rejected by their family and friends and are called sick by the church.
They are called faggots, queers, gays, and a lot of other derogatory terms that I won’t mention in this post. Their pain is real. They’ve been mistreated, verbally and at times, physically abused. And many have died and been burned at the stake. As a matter of fact, the word faggot was the term used to light the fire to burn them.
Are you proud of this?
We are living in the 21st century and it’s about time that we start treating people with respect and love. You may not agree with their sexual attraction (that is fine because they probably don’t agree with yours), but you have no right to demoralize another human being.
I have more to say about this, but I want you guys to watch this video before I do. I let my wife and kids watch it and they were very moved by it’s message. Let’s love more and stop the hate! #love
