Somewhere… over the rainbow…

We had planned to do a “rainbows” post to celebrate gay pride month… but now, it’s become a very sad time for the LGBT community. The incredible horrors that were the twin towers, Paris, Ft. Hood, Boston, San Bernardino and many others have now become a gruesome attack on gays in Orlando. It’s a horrendous thing and we grieve for the victims and their families, friends and loved ones.
Ben, Dub and I spend our lives in this happy, comfortable little cocoon here in the Kansas City Northland, and it’s easy (or maybe just convenient) to forget about all the hatred and ugliness in the world. While we’ve been accepted and befriended by most people in our area – and the Obama administration and Supreme court have made it easier to be gay in America – we know there are still untold thousands (if not millions) of narrow-minded, bigoted people who own guns, hate gays and wish us harm. Right now, it’s mostly a very few mis-guided Muslims inflicting pain and suffering on the World… but God help us if Donald Trump should be elected President.
