“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. 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 - - - - - - - - - - -

The City vs. The Artist Ends With a Story

For the artist in all of us...

While I certainly don't condone graffiti in our city's streets, this was actually quite interesting.  Hopefully the story truly came to an end.

The following images are courtesy of an unknown artist known simply as Mobstr, and it pits a city with the artist telling a story.  The city paints over it, and the artist returns to continue his story.

Saturday Morning Coffee Break: James

Today's Saturday Morning Coffee Break is quite powerful.  After watching the film for the first time I was quite upset, but after watching it a second time I came to understand it's sad reality.  I can't remember the amount of times I wish I could find someone to help me.  I prayed to God every night hoping he would "fix" me - And never got an answer.  I felt ashamed for being who I was and didn't know how to tell my parents.  As each year passed the hope never came, and telling my parents became an even harder taskI didn't tell my parents until I was 25 years old, and upon learning the news they were devastated.  Not only because I kept this secret for so long, but the fact I went to others thinking it would help me, and all they did was use me for their gratification.

There's a lot I want to say about the short movie you're about to see, but I don't want to spoil it or give a way it's plot.  I would like to hear any of your comments and maybe then I can voice my opinion.
