It was just announced that Barack Obama is our President-Elect – the 44th President of the United States. I have never voted for a President before and I am so glad to have participated in this historic event.
Yes, I voted for Barack Obama. He gave me the hope that I am looking for. A time for peace, a time for change. I am ecstatic right now and I am at a loss for words. Congratulations Barack Obama!! Oh, I’m sorry… congratulations Mr. President.
This ad caught my eye as I was reading another blog. The campaign is creative. I think it brings the message and the controversy surrounding it has gotten much attention.
Just like the poster, I myself agree that I was born a homosexual. I would have never thought otherwise. If it was a choice, I would be straight. Growing up gay and different from other people was not the path I would have chosen for myself. If it was a choice, I would rather be the same as everyone else.
As I age however, I am glad I am different. I see the world in a different light. I believe I am more compassionate because I am gay. I believe I feel more emotions because I am gay. I can understand the sinner better because I am gay. I do not condemn easily because I know of what I’ve been through. Therefore, my being gay helped me become who I am today and I am happy with what I see.
