And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

A Very Special Moment: Lazaro Arbos May Stutter, But He Can Sing

I've decided to create a new series, and I'm going to call it "A Very Special Moment".  

I always come across videos on the internet, that I swear, are very special moments and this video is one of those moments.  

Who you become, what inspires you and what message you convey to those around you - will definitely make you a better person.  All we want is to be loved and accepted. Everyone want's that. You want that.

Ryan and I haven't seen American Idol since Crystal Bowersox lost to Lee DeWyze in season 9, but the recent audition of Lazaro Arbos I caught online was absolutely gut-wrenching.  The boy has a stutter, but can definitely sing his heart out.

You always know how to make me cry, my love. :(.... I just felt so bad for him. He can sing great, and he's sweet and cute, but considering how important communication is in a relationship I just don't know how he's ever going to have one. It's so sad.
