Thought of the Day: Acceptance

Albert Pine quote

Everybody should feel free to be who they are. Nobody should have to hide who they are. I think some of us are becoming apathetic, tired, frustrated or overwhelmed with the inundation of talk about equality and rights: sexuality, gender, race, religion. Of course, we should be happy with the progress we’ve already made, but honestly, we are still far from an equal, accepting and tolerating society, and we cannot pretend otherwise. We need to keep talking, acting, and evolving. With every little choice, word and action, we define the world; they spark, influence and spread to all those we touch, physically and online. We have the power to create a society where we are all free and loved. It will always start with us but it doesn’t have to end with us. Remember: What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.
