The World We Live In Today

Yes I am home schooled. I am skinny, but I am not anorexic. I have a social life. I am involved with musical theatre, and no I am not gay. I go went to college early, but I am not a geneis. I am friendly without wanting to get in everyone’s pants. I wear black, but I am not suicidal. I am christian, but I don’t hate other religions. These are only some of stereotypes that I have lived with my entire life. Is this the county I want to raise my kids in? To have them grow up facing the same prejudice that I went though? The stares as I walk in public when they think I should be in school? I pray every night that the world will become accepting of us who are different. Because when it comes down to it, who wants to be normal? We strive every day to be unique, but then we turn around and bad mouth anyone who stands up for themselves. This world is in need of change. Now is the time to do it. I leave you with these wise words of a great man fighting for change. Marin Luther King once said “For years now I have heard the word “Wait!” it rings in the ear of every Negro with piercing familiarity. This “Wait” has almost always meant never. We must come to see, with one of our distiguished jurists, that ” justice too long delayedis justice denied.”‘
