I don’t know all of you.
I don’t know your mother’s maiden name, or your favorite sports team, or what high school you graduated from. Most of you I have never met and will never meet in my entire life. Not at one point in our parallel existence will the strings of our lives ever cross.
You do not matter to me.
You don’t know my nicknames. You don’t know my dreams or my fears. You don’t know my favorite band or the name of my first pet. We are not friends. We do not all go to the same church or practice the same religion or pray to the same god or pray to no god at all.
My life does not matter to you.
You force our paths to cross when you tell us that we are not even worthy human beings and then you say you feel disgusted when you see us…except you are the one who brought us together in the first place.
We don’t care about you.
So stop caring so much about us.
Like Disney? Like Fairy-tales? Like gay rights? Check out this video performed by and written by Toddrick Hall; the same mind that created Beauty and the Beat and the famous It Gets Better song.
