Right now, while I write this, a child is in his or her room, crying because someone at school called them a faggot, or would not sit next to them on the bus, or they did not make a sports team, because they are gay.
Right now, while I write this, a soldier is serving in Iraq, putting his life on the line for our freedoms, and he cannot marry the one person in the world who fills his heart with peace and joy, because he is gay.
Right now, while I write this, a little girl with no hate or judgment in her mind, heart, or soul, is being taught by her parents that some people are going to hell, and are not loved by God, because they are gay.
Right now, while I write this, I cry for the children who are in pain, unable to see the light at the end of the tunnel, and thinking that taking their own life is the only answer, because they are gay.
Right now, while I write this, God is watching over us, praying we can find a way to be kind to each other, because treating each other with hate, is not what he envisioned for the human race.
Right now, as I write this, I struggle to understand how the world can be so unkind, and wondering if there is any hope left for us to build a decent society. I weep, and question God about the world that we live in. He responds as he always has, and always will, by asking me to keep the faith.
