Happy Pride!! This week-end was pride week-end in St. Louis for the LGBT community. Sarah and I didn't get to go this week-end but we were there in spirit. For those of you who do not know what pride is, it is a big celebration of LGBT people....in other words, a big gay celebration..Lol! The month of June is pride month all over the world for LGBT people. It is a time for a diverse group of people to come together and celebrate the diversity between them as well as one part that makes them all the same. Every year in St. Louis, Pride grows larger and larger. It is really a beautiful thing to see so many couples and families sharing time together without having to worry about the dagger filled stares of judgement or the hateful words tearing down love. Also every year, there are protesters who try to "convert" the gays to their way of thinking and away from who we are born to be. These protesters are no better than Westboro Baptist Church as they can say hateful and hurtful things to loving couples right in front of their children. It would be easy to get hung up on what these people say and do and the negative things they say in do in front of families about values when they are the ones who are spewing such hate and bigotry in front of children. However, for me, it is more important to focus on the love between people and the positive feeling that flow through the air during Pride. People will always try to bring people down. In fact, it seems the more positive someone is, the more others try to bring negativity into your life. The fact of the matter is, you can choose to let the negative in and affect you or you can choose to focus on the positive and have some PRIDE!! Pride is for everyone....love is for everyone.....that is what I choose!! Happy Pride everyone!
