Please read this!

You've got to read this.  It is a letter from a mother to her college-age daughter about the suicide of the young gay man who was "outed" by so-called friends who shot a video of him with another man.

What a beautiful letter!

Also thank you for your post on my blog! I think I am over the label now. It is just interesting how damaging labeling can be. Especially to young children and young adults. Not so much with a food label but with all the other negative ones there are!

Also the whole mother thing...I am lucky to have a God Daughter and several friends who have children I am very close too. I am also hopeful that in some way I will be a mother too. Just stings a little thinking about what couldabeen. Lucky to have what I have though for sure!

WOW...that was amazing. I am going to go home and tell my 10 year old daughter the same thing tonight. I try to tell her all the time but I'm not sure that I always say the right thing. This was priceless. So true.
