I'm really not sure where I'm going with this post but I thought it was something I needed to blog about.
We live on this beautiful planet called Earth. We are able to watch the sun rise and the sun set. The soft glow of the moon lights the sky at night. We can count stars and make wishes on shooting stars. We can feel grass on our bare feet. We can look for four leaf clovers while playing outside. We can walk on a sandy beach and let the ocean tickle our toes.
We can live and love.
I love so many things and so many people. Isn't it great that we have this ability to have so much emotion for things and people around us??? To truly love is an awesome thing.
There are so many different cultures that we can be a part of. So many different types of people that we can be around. That we can love. Isn't that great???
I'm writing this because of some ignorant things that were said to my daughter yesterday. My Beautiful Crazy H will be 16 on June 8. She is the most wonderful young lady that you will ever meet. She's compassionate, beautiful, understanding and so full of life. I am very proud that she is my daughter. I carried her, nursed her and will love her for the rest of my life.
We cannot help who we fall in love with. Love is a gift and meant to be shared.
In a world that has so many great things to enjoy I still cannot believe that people get caught up on the color of skin. Skin is just skin. It's freckled, like mine, pale or dark. It can even be in between in color.
My Beautiful Crazy H loves boys that have dark skin. Does that mean that people can mistreat her?? HELL NO! With a world full of so many different people I cannot believe people still get stuck on skin color. Does this mean that H is any less a human being? It means that she loves who she loves. Love is meant for sharing and she chooses to look beyond the color of someone's skin color and see them for who they really are. A human being. That's it. When you forget the color of skin you just see a boy or girl. Nothing else. You will see someone with emotions. Someone with a story to tell. Someone who may be funny or a nerd. Someone that may like sports or to talk on the phone. Someone that may be afraid of spiders and some that may know magic.
So, why do people tend to judge by skin color??? I often wonder if H would be accepted more is she were into girls. I live in a very gay friendly area and see same sexes holding hands and kissing all the time. I don't see is as a bad thing. I see it as two people that love each other so much that they want to be together. LOVE IS GREAT and meant to be shared. Remember that?
So, why do people still say that awful word nigg**. I cannot even type it with a clear conscious. It makes me cringe to think that it's still in people's vocabulary. Really??? You think you are so high and mighty that you can throw THAT word around? I hate to break it to you but it makes you ignorant. It makes you ignorant of everything so beautiful about the place we live in. It makes you just IGNORANT. So, feel free to use your big words and hurt people but you are only hurting yourself.
You are not capable of looking beyond skin color and knowing people for who they really are. I almost feel sorry for you.
Until your vocabulary is brought up to speed and you see the world for what it really is then you aren't worthy of the compassion that my Beautiful Crazy H gives to those around her.
I don't care what color of skin you have just so you respect my daughter and love her for the young lady she is and the woman she will become.
