I wish to say a few words about our new Friends who René and I met yesterday. They are friends of René’s elementary school friend who he has been in touch with all these years. I did have the opportunity to state my thanks for their support of this, as it is called, “gay-lifestyle”. It is incredible to meet people who do not bat an eye at the thought of two people of the same sex living a “married lifestyle”.
Today, Brad Pitt’s mother, so I read, took out an advertisement in a newspaper asking people to vote against supporting GLBT persons who have done nothing except be born. What will Brad say? This has become a most horrifying soap opera — a soap opera I would rather not be a part of, yet, I am — and René is. We are lucky to have Friends.
Friends, such as the six people we spoke to yesterday, make a solid core to which we can cling. They will be by our sides to “fight the fight” in this Butterfly War. These Butterflies have the strength of Eagles. Together, we will prevail. It is this that most concerns me: There are those who do not realize that there is a core on which to place solid, comforting lives; listening to naysayers destructs confidence. The National campaign of advertising which says “It Gets Better” is good — and, needed. I hope many will heed these good intentions. I do know that many young people are our Friends, too. The Young Generation, in this country, is more apt to right wrongs. History has shown this to be the case many times. Is it past History those who Hate fear? If so, Why? Why must they encourage the opposite of what they supposed preach which is love and understanding? Too much is wasted. Too many moments are, and have been, and, yes, will be spent overcoming. We have to, and shall overcome.
