A Vision for Accepting Our Differences
Here is a touching and timely Vision that came in from Kerianne Spellman. We can’t thank you enough for this one, Kerianne. It is beautiful.
Kerianne says: “First and foremost, thank you for your amazing work. You are making a difference.
I am an actress and acting teacher of children and teens. I love my students and they teach me every day. A vision I would really like to see is …
I envision a world where people accept the differences of one another. I envision a world where parents embrace their children, regardless if they are gay or straight….
I envision a world where its okay to say “Mom, Dad, I think I am different. But I am proud of who I am, and I hope you will be, too.”
I envision a world where people can admit who they are, and not be attacked or disrespected. I envision a world where young gay men and women are safe…and not only safe, but celebrated!
I know this is for the highest good. So be it!!! And so it is.”

“The difference between an obstacle and an opportunity is our attitude towards it. Every opportunity has a difficulty, and every difficulty has an opportunity.”
