Give Them Hope; Give Them Life
Since getting involved in this mission to help save some young lives, I’ve come to recognize a very clear and discernible constant: a pervasive sense of hopelessness. And, in many-to-most cases, I could understand where their sense of hopelessness comes from. In addition to the normal angst and anxiety that comes with being a teenager, and with the added weight of dealing with their sexuality internally and externally, they are bombarded with negativity as it pertains directly to them. In many, but certainly not all, cases, they are made to feel less than whole, “defective”, unwanted, unloved, and add your own adjective. There’s, unfortunately, too many to add them all here. So, in my ongoing, and never ending, effort to help bring this culture of intolerance to an end, I want to pass along this information. Someone’s life will be saved by your efforts.
