What I support

Equality is the buzz word of today. You may have noticed many of these

on your Facebook and twitter feeds.

This afternoon amidst child retrieval, a friend asked me "what do you support?"

I don't usually espouse my political and religious beliefs, but here's what I support...

I support kindness, I support not being a douche. I support not judging people based on anything except the content of their character, looking passed a persons skin, gender, political choice, partner, height, weight, disease, job, level of education , and looking instead at the human, the person, the heart, the soul. I support examining your own-self and imperfections, before trying to pick apart what we believe are the imperfections of others. I support loving people, all people.

None of us get out of here alive, who has time for hate?

I don't want to be judged, so why would I pass judgement?

Here's another hot button issue, while I'm on a roll... I own a gun, I know how to use that gun, and I would strongly dissuade anyone from breaking into my house or threatening my children. I have many family and friends who don't agree with that, but love me anyway, and I return that love, unbiased, without prejudice.

I love my friends and family because I love who they are, they make me laugh, smile, think, try, succeed, hold me up, and knock me down when needed. Nothing else matters, black, white, right, left, gay, straight, man, woman, doctor, cab driver, tall, short, fat, skinny, WHO CARES?!?!?!!

What do I support? I support being nice. Period.
