WHERE WAS EVERYONE?

I don't know how to start this one off today, but all I know is that I am very dissappointed - a bit angry!

Yesterday's turn-out at the rally to put a stop to hate crimes - in the LGBT Community particularly - was just shamefull. Yes, Michael Sandy wasn't someone who was a popular fixture in NYC, but he was one of us - a gay man trying to survive in a hateful world. I was very embarassed to be one of the many few there representing our community, but at the same time proud to stand up for what I think is only right; justice for us all!!! This could have been your brother, sister, lover, or even your mother. Their is no excuse good enough to have prevented anyone of you gay children from being there - or straight for that matter if you believe in humanity. Children, wake-up before its too late. We've go to support each other!!!!

You supported me, right? I am angry, and asking WHY YOU WEREN'T THERE TO SUPPORT "OUR" COMMUNITY?

I was there, but don't have an answer for why more people weren't there. I do sense a certain "rally fatigue" if you will, by some who feel that we come together in anger, speak out, and nothing changes.

Perhaps what we're seeing is a desire for other approaches, other strategies, although I don't know what those are.

I'm saddened to hear of another senseless death as a result of hate. God is about love, and wants us to love each other; not judge. He created you, me, Michael and everybody else with purpose and on purpose - even these hateful people who can't know Him if they're hearts are full of hate.

Don't mean to preach, just want to say I love you; just because you are you.
