Many people talk about the lack of purpose and accomplishment of this generation. One thing I think we can be very proud of is the way we have made strides in accepting different ways of being and moving through life. There is a strong movement among us to not only accept, but to genuinely understand those who live differently from ourselves. A desire to understand another is the basis for all love. And can't the world always use more love?
So during Gay Pride month, let's celebrate humanity, dignity, understanding and love. In the immortal words of Lady Gaga,
"I'm beautiful in my way
Cause God makes no mistakes
I'm on the right track, baby
I was born this way."
