So many of us are walking around with a judge and jury in our heads. We don't believe that we're enough as we are. Instead, we're putting ourselves on trial, and the "verdicts" leave us feeling unworthy and isolated. But what happens when we embrace freedom, even though we're afraid? It's revolutionary.
When my time does come, whether it be tomorrow, months, or years from now, I want to know I did everything I could to pay the goodness I've been shown forward. I want to live gratefully in each moment and for each person who has filled every grace given breath with beauty. With this grace I have so graciously been gifted, I will fight.
The reason I am against the Religious Freedom Restoration Act is not because I am a lefty liberal, but because I am a proud American Christian. This legislation, though guised in the cloak of religious liberty, is the first string to be pulled out of our basic civil rights. This state is beginning the slippery slope of legalized discrimination.
