What is it all about?

There is only 1 great constant in the world.

No, it isn't taxes, nor is it Death. The only thing that you can always count on is change. It happens whether or not you wish it, or are ready for it. Change has happened, will happen and is happening. The weather changes, the value of the dollar changes, people change and it is this I will speak of now.

Not so long ago, for a man to look lustfully at another man was a sin (unless you were a priest. but that is a topic for another day). What is so wrong about that? If Steve really likes Earl, what harm are they going to do to you? How is their love going to ruin the love you have for your chosen one? Betty and Anne, they have been together for 15 years now. How is their life so wrong? Is it because the Bible says so? The same book that says you may beat your wife with a rod no larger than your thumb, the book that says you may sell your daughter as a slave, that touching a pigskin is wrong (say goodbye to football)

Why are so many people so scared of Steve and Earl and Betty and Anne? It has to be fear as there is no logic behind it, there is no physical reason for it, there is no rule from nature that says it is wrong so it has to be fear. Fear of something different, fear of things changing. Yes, things change, that is the way of nature, the way of life. Woman are now allowed to vote, it is no longer permissible to own slaves, we can live under the sea and on the moon. All of these things were unthinkable, frightening things but we changed.

For all of you out there who are scared of the future, grab your woobie and teddy bear and hang on because change happens. It is scary but it is a natural state of being. Do your best to be brave because Steve and Earl and Betty and Anne are just people, just like you and me. They don't want to hurt you and they don't want you to hurt them.

Be brave
Change happens
Enjoy life and let others do the same
