we are people, and people make mistakes, but people also have opinions, and ideas and thoughts and emotions, and we do make mistakes, and we do fall down, but we also do great things, and we get back up, and we fight, and we’re tough, and some of us never give up. we love and we hate and we yell and we scream and we do good things, and we help people, and we say things, and sometimes people don’t want to hear those things, but we have a right to say them, and you have the right not to listen. we can’t hide and be quiet, we can’t live two lives, one nice and clean and proper, and the other honest but hidden from view. we must be what we are and who we are, and others must find value in that. we must not be afraid, the time of being judged is past, those who judge surely fear being judged, and have their own demons and monsters to deal with. turn on the lights, point out the obvious, scream it from the rooftops, be who you are, and say what you will, and don’t be afraid of what they say because chances are, there’s a world you want to live in, so make it happen, be a part of that world, and don’t let them make the decisions for you. thanks, and good luck!
