Everybody Has an Opinion…

Everybody Has an Opinion…

… or a belief, on which they won’t budge, until:

their son comes out as transgender; or,
their new neighbor is black or hispanic or asian or jewish or muslim or catholic or christian or atheist; or,
their partner suffers an addiction; or,
their relative goes to prison; or,
their daughter says she’s pregnant; or,
as a juror, they must vote yes or no on the death penalty.

Then as if in a miracle, enlightenment and change can happen in an instant and open one’s heart to empathy and support for a loved one to live a happy and healthy life.


Red at the Bone by Jacqueline Woodson
