What Now?

I thank Nan for sending me the link for this post. It is well written and well thought out. It says what we need people to say, that is that they won’t let others be treated unfairly , they won’t discrimination become the accepted normal. All people need to stand up for the rights and progress we have made. I am reminded though that a lot of the votes from the Christian right came from people who wanted more rights for themselves, at the expense of LGBTQ people.

I will wait to see how many people will stand up now for others. I am not hopeful of them doing it. Hugs
