Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.
What light is to the eyes - what air is to the lungs - what love is to the heart, liberty is to the soul of man.
Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.
There are different ways that kids who are gay take on the rejection and alienation they feel. The way I dealt with it was to say, 'You know what? You're imposing judgments on me and condemnations, but I don't accept them. I'm going to instead turn the light on you and see what your flaws are and impose the same judgmental standards on you.'
I acknowledge the four elements. Water in the North; incense to recognize the air in the East; flowers for the earth in the South; a candle for light from the West. It helps me keep perspective.
