"there is another generation rising who can still get there, another child born who will be loved, another marriage that will withstand the pressure, another death that will be mourned with love and not violence, and hope still speaks volumes where bravado, racism, sexism, genderism, nationalism, and religious bigotry have failed. We can still live proud enough to die." Much love to those who resist being fed lies and who reject anyone's enemies list.
