So in the future I am going to share stories from all that I have come to understand and know. We all have a story. There is no right way or wrong way. However, I think it is time to realize that we need to stop letting others use our beliefs against us. To stop letting others take our love and turning it into hate. I walked out their in the world and I learned to listen to all over you. I have shaken your hands, smiled with you, cried with you, and shared my life with you.
We all have been torn up enough. I stopped being afraid of all of you. I learned how to love you as you all are. You shared your hearts, dreams and minds with me. Now, some of my friends are going to share their lives with you. We have all cast stones at each other, it is time to end the competitions, comparisons, and see we all can build bridges to each other.
There is no more blood that needs to be shed. There is nothing to forgive. You are all my friends and I accept you just as you are even if you can't accept me. You aren't required to. I am required to accept you if I want to be at peace. We sacrifice only our ego, our self-interest in order to be the change we want to see in others.
I am willing to do that. I have no control over if you are not willing to do that. None whatsoever. It's your choice.
