They all said no

I had a shitty day, but for the first time in a long time our country did not. So I still can see hope glimmering in the future regardless of my inner turmoil in the present.

Today Senators John McCain, Lisa Murkowski, and Susan Collins said no. They will not let their party pass this joke of a “healthcare” bill.

Today the military said no. They will not go backwards in this countries fight for equality. They will let their strong American heroes continue to fight for this country regardless of gender.

Today the Boy Scouts of America said no. They were not supposed to let Trumps speech go on as it did, they should have stopped it.

Today this country said NO. No Mr. President you cannot bully us into submission. We will fight back. Our senators, military, and national groups are remembering their duty. They are realizing what it means to be loyal to the country, not the president. The citizens of this country have been fighting for this country, and those in a position to take a stand are finally waking up and hearing us. They are saying no, no president will bring this country down.

There is still a long way to go, but today was a large step in that resistance.

I asked earlier this week for those of the LGBTQ community to consider sharing their story here on the blog. I want to open that further. Anyone who wants to share their struggle, or fight, or success in regards to equality, let me know. Hit the contact section of the site and send me a message asking to write a guest post.

🌈 Come share your story 🌈

I am a firm believer in equality. So often I feel that I am not doing enough to support it though. I live in a way to treat people equally, I teach my kids to do the same. But I want to do more. I don't have much to offer in support, but I do have a blog. So I am asking you to share your story through a guest post. Right now I am focusing on the LGBTQ community as they are facing tremendous discrimination right now. The legal equality we have fought for is being taken away.

If you would like to share your story go to the contact section of the site and send me a message asking to write a post. I'll email you back so you can send me your guest post. I'm doing it this way for privacy reasons and also to help me keep organized.

You can speak to discrimination you've faced, support and love you've received, your story of coming out, or maybe you aren't ready to come out and would like to post anonymously what you can't yet say elsewhere.

You will have the choice of posting your name or remaining anonymous. If you have a blog I'd be happy to include the link in the post, or simply send me a message through the contact section with a link to one of your own posts you would like me to reblog.

If you simply want to leave a quick comment here you are welcome to do so. But if you want to share your story or blog I ask that you please send me a private message first because I want you to have your own post. I don't want you lost in a line of comments, I want you to have the space and focus you deserve.

Love you all! Namaste – I bow to the divine in you
