117. Brief but important

I keep mentioning Ellen, and for good reason. I do adore her. But this is not so much about that. This is a serious post. A young, openly gay boy was killed by a boy he asked to be his valentine.

Again, I think she has some very inciteful things to say about the gay jokes that are so rampant, even in our "tolerant" society.

Sometimes the world scares me.

Now I'm off to go hang with some preschoolers. They always make me feel better about the world.

I just found your blog. I'm 20 and just beginning to deal with what may be bisexuality or homosexuality. I've always been a passionate christian so this is all very weird to me. I'm bookmarking your blog. Thanks for the thoughts.

Your blog is amazing. I'm a young Christian male and the fact that you're opening this up for the rest of us is really cool. I might just sit here and read your thoughts. I don't really know what I think about homosexuality, but I do know that we lack grace amongst what I think is xenophobia most of the time. Keep talking it out. It's good.

I was so proud of Ellen for making this statement.

I'm glad to have come across your blog!
