Respect

I saw this video today on the Advocate news site. I think it is a nice step forward in transgender respect. Hopefully the Department of Justice can make more impacts like this and help in training.

Choice

You know I am really tired of political machinations. It does not matter which side you look at you will find lies, deceptions, and all out greed and selfishness is running rampant. Unlike others I won't tell you who to choose but I will tell you who not to choose.

If anyone has outright lied and been caught doing so then don't support them.

If anyone calls for anyone's harm, at any time, then don't support them.

If anyone in their life has manipulated the system for their own benefit then don't support them.

If anyone refers to the good old days instead of seeing the potential of now and the future then don't support them.

If anyone supports taking away your rights or has participated in doing such then don't support them.

If anyone is part of a political dynasty then don't support them.

If you don't like either side then don't vote for either side. Demand and get better!

Most importantly vote and do the right thing. You are the last barrier between freedom and the darkness. The power is and always has been yours. You just have to realize it. You have to seize it back.

So to all those politicians who fit any of those above keep walking, thank you for your time, and go quietly unto the files of history. It is time the people, all of the people, get their due.

Crime

So much lately I hear about crime. I hear about such horrible things people have done. Then I hear the manufactured crimes against LGBT people. Who am I to avoid a a discussion on society? So let us compare lists.

All things must have a beginning.  To the family member who raped and abused me for more than a decade I charge you with child rape, abuse, and cruelty. I will never get my childhood or innocence back. Your crimes will forever haunt me to some degree.

To the hospital I called distraught and on the verge of slicing open my wrists due to what was happening to me, and you ignored me. You never even returned my call or sent a police officer to check on me. A teenager so hurt and wounded they reached out in distress and you did nothing. I charge you with criminal neglect.

To the various clergy in my life who repeatedly informed me I was going to Hell and told me so many nasty things of what I was, simply for existing, I charge you with mental torture. Who are you to proclaim and enforce God's will. Maybe you should read those texts you like to quote again. I certainly read them looking for answers. After all it is how I found God and he saved that deeply wounded teenager.

To every friend I told about my abuse one by one.... Not a one of you asked if I was ok or was there anything you could do to help. Not a one! Yours may not be a legal crime but it is certainly a crime against the heart. I was and have been there for each and every one of you. I wish you had been there for me.

To the men who expressed such hate and violence to make me hide myself as best I could, I charge you with crime against Humanity. I remember those who were beaten, the young man found dead in a ditch, the threats... I also charge you with criminal negligence for making a child grow up like that.

To the leaders of our world who so eloquently pass their laws that so casually dismiss my existence and criminalize my life I to charge you with crimes against Humanity.  And as a result of the things you stir up with such I charge you with assault, rape, murder...

To all the people who know better and do nothing to make such things stop I charge you with aiding and abetting a crime/criminal. I exist, and such I have a right to life just as much as anyone else.

You know this list could go on so much longer. Just my charges alone could keep lawyers busy for a very long time. Now add to it the list of every LGBT person, every minority, every victim. Society has failed. Only you can right it.

In all honesty I don't expect any of these charges to be judged or even pursued but I do expect justice. Each and every one of you on this list and those I didn't list owe your due. Whether it be penance, admitting your errors, or even just allowing me to live my life in peace I expect justice.

I don't want revenge and I don't want to force my will upon any of you. I of all people know the denial of ones free will. I of all people know the true abomination in this world. I don't want to preach and I don't want special rights. I want to live equally and freely, free from interference and meddling.

Maybe if good men who hold their ideals and values so high would come forward and practice what you teach maybe life can once again flourish.

To all those people of God who will surely respond to me with some scripture or another... I believe and follow God. I have thought about this one a lot. Have you ever considered we who are different are the witness' of your world? Do you truly follow his word?

Think about that one. You clearly state God has a will and all things are intentional. That means we have a role, it means we are part of God's plan. It means we have a path to the divine.

I am sorry if my words anger or rile some of you up. Those of you on my list may even contest my statements but they are from my heart and soul. They are as true as I can express. As hard as they may be to hear, think about how hard they were to experience.

Most of my life has been hurting, running, and hiding from one of you or others. No more! I am owed debts so great, by some, that can never be repayed. I don't want any of you hurt. There has been enough of that.

So now I have compared a small part of my crime list do we need to continue this discussion or can we finally talk about justice and finding solutions? I am here, I live, I feel, I express, and I hurt. Help me stop the crimes. No one should hurt.

We should love!

Truth

You know so many of us dance around truth and even try to make it work for us. In reality however truth stands and stands alone regardless of how you spin it. So today let us talk about some very real truths.

This world, the here and know, is what we have. The future is not our concern, today is. Tomorrow is based on the bricks we lay on this day and tomorrow will come soon enough. If you don't lay a good foundation now how can you expect tomorrow to be any better?

So many of us fight and compete with others striving for whatever goal we set. However there is no competition except with yourself. You are the one who sets your goals. Try as you might chasing after someone else and theirs will always leave you empty. Why? Because it is they who then set your pace and your object of desire.

Fortune is a goal so many strive for and I can not find fault with the desire for a better life. But, at some point, when is enough enough? I can buy a pretty bauble and then when I get more wealth a new one or one gilded and laced with gems.  Does it make it any better? No, it is just a way to express I have more.

Fame oh that one lures so many. They wish to be known, listened to, and respected. All to soon however they find they are stalked, harassed, and denied any time to themselves. Fame does not equal happiness. That only comes from within.

Power...now that one seduces so many. They do such horrible things to achieve it sometimes. All because they think getting someone to do something for you makes you stronger. It does not. It only means you are a good liar, deceiver, or cruel. In some cases it makes you a coward because you can not do your will on your own.

 Pride, sweet pride, a little goes a long way. This one can make us stand and do whats right. To much however and we become stubborn and obstinate. When we can not bow our heads to others in in the knowledge we are wrong or do not have all the answers our pride is to much.

Arrogance... I think we all know this one. It and pride sometimes overlap. To be so sure you and only you are right or have the answers is arrogant. If you can not acknowledge even the slightest chance of error you are arrogant. Such only serves you and even serves you poorly.

Some of you may ask where am I going with this and maybe you know what these truths are already. Then allow me to pose you a question of truth. When do you choose to make the world we all share better? Be careful of that one though. We may think we know truth on how that should be but if better does not help everyone then it helps none.

You may question that last line but think about it. Truth stands. It is us who seek to twist and manipulate it to suit our desires. Good, evil, rich, poor, famous, unknown, powerful, and powerless all share the same place. Whatever your motive it relies upon others if you go anywhere beyond yourself.

Maybe we should tend to those around us and ensure they are taken care of and have happy lives just as much as we do. All those lovely truths above rest on foundations of our construction today. Choose your materials and construction site wisely. Make sure your workers are knowledgeable and well cared for. Finally make sure your vision is clear as to what you are building. Undoing and rebuilding to constant design changes only tries the soul.

Truth, that stubborn root you try and try to remove, grind down, and even burn. Funny how something that seems such an obstacle to us consumes so much of our time and effort. Yet when we stop resisting to it being there and merely work around it life becomes easier and happier.

So how do we approach truth? That one is simple. We do the right thing. You must decide what that is. You must also choose when to do it. The only advice I can tell you is the longer you wait the harder and more convoluted it becomes.

Truth is we all matter each and every one of us. Maybe if we stop resisting that and work with it life will be easier and happier. Is it any wonder why we define love and true love? Truth!

History

Maybe it is time we reviewed our history a bit. I know many people find history boring so I shall only give you a couple videos to watch. Please watch and learn. Knowing who we are and how we got here is important.

Spectre of Yesterday

Sometimes we as humans don't learn the lessons from past mistakes and in our arrogance, selfishness, and pride think we can avoid the pitfalls of yesteryear even though we begin walking the same path. Willfulness has no place in Humanity because it is about you and you alone, not us. Sadly I must show these videos again. Maybe, just maybe the people who need to see it will finally understand and advert the sins of the past.

Walking Wounded

I'd like to talk about being a wounded soul. Some of us have been so hurt and traumatized due to many reasons in life and it really is senseless. However not all wounds heal or heal quickly. If you have ever known bitter wounds you may understand. Not everyone does though so I shall try and explain.

When minds, bodies, and our very spirit have endured to much many things can happen. At the very least we will become walking wounded. At worst we will collapse in upon ourselves. Ideally no one should have to get to these points but we are not in a perfect world.

Being a walking wounded person means a lot of things really but in short your resistance is very thin. Some may lash out freely and bitterly to prevent any further harm. Others may just shut down and simply exist rather than live. Still others may completely lose themselves to a madness.

I could list so many things of what can occur but they all depend on what has wounded us and how long we have endured. Having been a walking wounded and in some cases still one I can tell you the best cure is peace, love, and most certainly trust.

If people can not live in safety and security then there is no chance for recovery. That is the burden of society. We all must take part in the recovery of someone who is walking wounded. It is quite simply Human dignity.

Sadly to many ignore their role in taking care of those who have been hurt. I've heard some say I didn't hurt them. Why should I help. My reply is simple. You help because if you do not then you are hurting someone by allowing them to suffer. No one deserves to suffer.

There are many ways to help. Fight for tougher laws to prevent horrific crime and atrocities. Fight for people to get medical treatment. Help people get counseling. Probably most important ensure these people can live safely and peacefully.

We as a civilization are as strong as our weakest members. If we ignore them then we lay the foundations for a bitter future. People can and will crash and burn, sometimes in dramatic spectacles that not only hurt others but create new walking wounded.

If you know someone who has been through such savagery then listen to them. Listen very carefully. They will usually tell you what they need to heal. It may seem scattered but it will be there. Usually it means we need to protect them. Honestly I can think of no more noble job as to look out for someone so hurt.

We are each others guardians in life. It may be difficult and thankless at times but saving a life is a peace all it's own. It is also a task that may take a very very long time. If this job comes unto you remember in all things love. Because if you do it for love it is pure and can not hurt. If you do it for any other reason then you may continue the hurt and make things worse.

We have a lot of problems in society and a lot of people who are out of control and ignoring anyone but themselves. The seeds of those actions are harvested in the wounded. But the hope is with the blessings of the warm sun, gentle rains, and tender care of a gardener even weeds can become beautiful.

I know all to well how hard it is to forget and let go of some things. But the truth is we must remember them in order to deal with them. We must have help. We must have peace and we must have love.

If you encounter a walking wounded then please be a gentle gardener and help them find the sun and show them how to let the rains wash away the pain.  It's the best we can do. It takes so much good to counter every bad thing.

In the scope of time all of us who walk wounded may need millenia if we began working on us all right now. But the good thing is every step helps. Every action matters and every love lifts. I can't tell you to do the right thing you have to make that choice yourselves. You have to decide when do we stop adding to the problems of peoples lives or ignoring them.

For me I have my own simple wish. I wish for peace, love, and good people around me. Fame, fortune, power are all illusions of our ego. I'm tired of ego. It is time for this soul to bask in the blessings this world has to offer.

Come walk with me or another who has been hurt so badly and help us bask in the beautiful light. Live, Love, Forgive!
