I write when I'm inspired and publish only when I'm ready. I don't read comment forums and I block communication from harassing strangers. I connect with at least one close friend per day, preferably in person. I sing constantly, loudly, and usually only for myself (or dogs). I'm doing the best that I can and trying to greet each new day with wonder and gratitude.
Last week, a viral video depicted Daniel Ashley Pierce, a young man who recorded his family's violent reaction to his having come out as gay -- yelling about the Bible, physically assaulting him and kicking him out of the house. Daniel's boyfriend posted the video online, and people around the world were horrified by what they saw.
