“‘How was school?’ I asked C.J. His pain came pouring out. ‘My friend said her family doesn’t hang out with gay people. She doesn’t want to know me anymore.’  Tears dripped from between his little fingers. ‘Who will I sit with at lunch?’ He climbed into my lap like a small child. ‘If I could take the hurt away, I would.’ I said. ‘I know, but you can’t take the gay away.’ This is what hate does. It’s a mother rocking her 5th grader because neither one knows how to ease the pain.”

“The first birthday I spent with my husband, I turned 16. I remember where we went, what I was wearing. It was the first time he really held my hand. There was something magical about it. It was fall. We were coming out of a hot summer, the night air was cool. There was nobody else I wanted to spend it with than him. The last birthday I spent with him was my 43rd. In the blink of an eye, he was gone. Nothing has been the same since.”

“As I’m consoling my daughter who is on the verge of tears, the mother swam over to me and began shouting at me to not speak to her children like that. Her response, ‘ Well, only one of them is my child. The other is a friend we brought with us from next door. They didn’t do that, and you will not speak to them that way.’ I won’t lie, I saw red. That was it for me.”
