It's been a weird weekend. SCOTUS declared same-sex marriage is legal in all states, black churches were burned and people climbed flag poles to remove offensive flags.
My social media account is full of rainbow-colored people, people declaring that NOW they are moving to Canada which is strange since they legalized same-sex marriage there a while back and Christians stating that even though homosexuality is a sin, they love them anyway.
Everyone has their journey. The world continues to turn regardless where your heart lies or who you marry. All I know in the end that my son now lives in a country where he can freely love and marry whoever who chooses.
I am reading a book now called, I'm Chocolate, You're Vanilla. It's giving me some peace now to understand how the young understand race. Though now it not that time, eventually my son will have tougher questions for me like why do people look at us that way out in public? Right now, I am not ready. I can't explain why our society favors whites over other races. It's not fair but so systemic that it seems overwhelming.
But the slogans I am seeing are true. Love does win in the end. I can love the Christian who calls homosexuality a sin and my gay/bisexual friends. I don't have to agree with you in order to give you compassion.
We still live in a country where everyone is not treated the same. That alone should be keeping us all up at night.
