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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Post Secret Fridays - Issue 110

PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard.
On Back of Card:  I like to think that she's my dad, reincarnated.
Email Response from Sender:  Frank, I'd like to share the good news that came from my PostSecret App Secret I posted several months ago.

Six weeks ago I got the text of a lifetime, after five weeks of courage we finally talked for a couple minutes, awkward but encouraging. I am flying out to see him in five days to reunite after seven years. I still don't know what I am going to say or do when I finally see him but I am nervously excited.

While it may not be smooth sailing ahead, I can say that I have stopped having nightmares, my heart is starting to heal and that my soul is finally at peace.

I am now a firm believer that there's real hope for us all.

P.S. I hear you'll be at my alma mater tomorrow. Sad it sold out before I bought tickets, enjoy the beautiful campus!

That last one was really special to me. It's because of brave people coming out that society is progressing to full equal rights everyday. I don't know what will happen with the Supreme Court in June, but no matter what it's just a matter of time before my husband and I have the same rights as our neighbors across the street.

I have organized my blogs with 3 days worth of postings, so if you wish to continue reading the days before that, and so forth and so forth, you can click the "Older Posts" button /\ /\ /\ right /\ up there.

There are 3 other ways you can find interesting topics to read as well.
