I’ve been challenged lately.

Details aside, I’ve had time to reflect on the prejudice that still exists toward the human condition.

The two areas that pertain specifically to me deal with sexuality and chosen spiritual path.

We have come so far and yet, we are still defending our actions, thoughts and orientations.

Where I draw the line is breaking bread. My stand is that to break bread with someone is a sacred act. And that act, for me, will be limited to those who count all walks of life as valid.

A small gesture towards humanity and myself, perhaps. But it’s what I can do, and what keeps me true to myself.
