~ Words Matter ~
Ever since I was a fetus I've been drawn to the mighty and beautiful diversity in this world. Different colors of skin, different religions, and special needs children, whose lives are now being unfurled. I was raised to be a soothsayer, and truth relayer, not a dooms-dayer or a world ender, so I'm proud to see in my adopted family of mighty diversity there are beautiful souls who are transgender. For rather than being someone who loves money, and consistently attempts to tear down others, I'd rather extend my hand to all my sisters and brothers. I was raised to see, that blessed be, amidst this mess that we inherited those that should be merited are the lovers, healers, peacemakers, and menders. At birth in my beautiful country we are given the entitlements to love, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But it seems to me the current powers that be feel only they have the entitlements, and only desire that we, this beautiful diversity only increase war, lies, division, and crappiness. The vulnerable among us are being knocked down even more, such that inequality is being increased. But the vulnerable among this beautiful diversity have souls equal to mine and should not be forever treated as least.
And since I know I will be judged by how I treat the the least among us, I better hurry up and love. There are mountains of evidence-based and science-based research as to how love improves everyone's lives. And I thank the good Lord above, for putting it on my heart to do my part and never quit so that every bit of this mighty and beautiful diversity survives and thrives. ........
