Tolerance

One thought ∼

I read an article recently from Longreads of one person wondering how she is to now live in the aftermath of Orlando…Celebrating Pride: Where Religion and Queerness Meet by Emily Perper

One thought comes to mind…Tolerance.

The capacity for or the practice of recognizing and respecting the beliefs or
  practices of others.” (As defined in the Free Dictionary)

Let us gather and find common ground, a place where I let you live and where you let me live – in peace, in harmony – in prosperity. Not just for our LGBT brothers and sisters, but for all.

Where does this begin? How do we start?

It begins with one act of kindness. One moment of standing up for the rights of someone different than oneself.

It begins with laying down weapons and words that harm.

It begins with your willingness…let us start now!

 – Hope
