“The hallmark of a healthy society has always been measured by how it cares for the disadvantaged.” — Joni Eareckson Tada
The last couple of days have been interesting and wonderful. The news and the debate on TV have been the interesting part, and the national Coming Out Day has been the wonderful part. I have been trying to keep an even thought and trying not to make myself upset about all the comments and all of the news stories about how Trump can’t seem to do enough wrong for it to be enough is enough. So I am trying to keep it positive with other thoughts about how far the LGBTQ+ community has come and even with the push back in the last year and all the bathroom bills — how wonderful it is that there was a place to tell stories on campus yesterday and every person has a story to tell. I can look at today’s news and be sad or I can look towards other stories and see the hope that things will be better.
