I have learned the only sacred bond that truly exists is the one you have with yourself to stand up in the face of hatred, bigotry, homophobia and any other kind of behavior that denigrates another human being.
It may take many years to understand what this truly means.
It may have been plain as day all along; it may have been written on the windowpane you’ve been looking through your whole life, but you saw past it for some reason.
Maybe you thought you were honoring a memory or a tie you really never were part of in the first place; one that sort of fell into your lap.
And then one day the cup overflows and you find yourself tired of trying to balance the cup and not spill it.
You dump out the whole mess, walk away and go on living your life.
You’re surprised once again at how little effort it takes to do the right thing.
