Wow. The first time I read this piece, I was left speechless. I am nearly so now. This quote up there? This is all of it. Right there. Life is good- no matter where it is found. Life is sacred — in all forms. Life is special — and should be treated as such.
This is a beautifully written, thoughtfully shared, and painfully felt piece. You’ve outdone yourself here. My heart goes out to all those people persecuted for their differences from those who would harm them. My heart goes out to you in the loss of your father, in slow excruciating steps. And to your father, as he surely realizes what he is losing. It’s heart rending.
I will say this… He must be proud of you. Of the man that you are. What a beautiful soul you have Michael. I am glad I am able to share in some of what you have to offer this world. You are very special indeed.
Thank you for sharing this with us. ❤
