It's time for me to get myself set up over here just to archive everything and start using this journal.

Thank you

Thank you all for your prayers, thoughts, and good wishes during this most difficult year. I hope I can give back to all of you at some time. Bless you in 2012.

How many meth heads in their fifties actually decided to try meth to lose weight?

Need I add that it is NOT a good idea?

Another baseball game tonight, another near heart attack. At least last night's shut out was more rewarding than the disastrous game on Saturday. GO, RANGERS!

I was going to rant about the debt ceiling tug of war going on right now. I'm concerned about the stock market going to hell for selfish reasons. We're thinking about retirement and it's pissing me off that we might lose some of our money again. That said, I'm a perfectly able-bodied adult who can work another twenty years if that's what it takes. I'm lucky. I'm healthy and I've saved a lot over the years. I also have a job that I like and I can always find something else to do if I have to.

I just had to let go of my anger at the stupidity of our political system because it's that anger that divides us in the first place. Instead, I think it's time to pray or at least reflect in the most spiritual way possible. What can we do to make it better?

My prayers will be offered for the people of Norway who just suffered two terrible attacks. I pray for them because I fear that it might transform their society into the paranoid culture we have here in the US. I hope they don't start looking over their shoulders and that the whole population doesn't start arming itself. Would it have been better if someone at that camp could have shot this guy after he started killing people? Well, I guess so, but I wish there was a better way.

My prayers will also be offered for the people who feel marginalized and feel compelled to join cults or extremist groups. What can we do as a society prevent people like this guy from being created in the first place? Is tolerance so hard to learn? What can I do to make it happen? Was this mental illness? What can we do about mental illness?

Hard questions. No answers.

We're buying a gasoline gift card for a co-worker who is leaving our office and moving to Florida. Since she has to drive across the country from DFW area, what gas stations is she most likely to encounter? I thought Shell, Exxon or Mobile would be good. Any ideas? Thanks for your help.

*I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.

*I am the person who is afraid of telling his loving Christian parents he loves another male.

*I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.

*I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.

*We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

*I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

*I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.

*I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.

*I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

*We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

*I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.

*I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.

*I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.

*I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.

*I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.

*I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.

*I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.

*I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I did not have to always deal with society hating me.

*I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.

*I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.

Re-post this if you believe homophobia/transphobia is wrong. Please do your part to end it.
