WOW WHAT AN E-MAIL!

Each of you is important.  If I had some blue ribbons like those in the story below,
I'd give one to you and some extra to pass on to others.  Even without those ribbons,
we can pass on kindness, helpfulness, support, and other kinds of unconditional love.

Are We Looking At Copycat Youth Suicides | Focus On The Rainbow

I had been thinking about the reaction to this commentary all day on Monday, but after reading of yet another teen suicide I could not help but ask myself the question, are we now seeing an epidemic of copycat suicides. I offer no answers in this posting just a very unsettling question which I put to readers and those of scholarly minds and investigative authorities.

I can’t recall so many teen or near teen suicides, both LGBT and not, in such a short time frame as we have had since the beginning of this school year. And when one is brought to the brink of so much despair and reading about others is it possible that some are now looking at that final answer to their various dilemmas as a way to go on and be remembered through the media and reminders of what brought them to that final act of desperation.

LOVE IS...

Love is judgmental,
Love is not lending a hand to a stranger in need

Love is painful,
Love is not knowing the sacrifices are worth it

Love is biased,
Love is not recognizing someone's pain and being there for comfort

Love is difficult,
Love is opening your heart to those who want to give

Love is selfish,
Love is putting another's heart second to your own

Love is blind,
Love is not looking in the mirror and know you are someone special

Love is complex,
Love is an insincere smile

Love is  distant,
Love is a heartless hug


Love is the one true gift we have to share with anyone,
anywhere, in an unlimited supply. How's your 'love supply'?

THANK GOD I FOUND YOU-THEN & NOW


On this day, the third anniversary of our relationship, I must say that I still feel immensely blessed, fortunate and humbled by the love that we share for each other. Three years ago we began on this journey and I must say it is one that I have not regretted taking. Our Love continues to grow from strength to strength and I consider myself to be very fortunate.

¿WHY NOT NOW?



We all know that we did NOT choose to be born; we did NOT choose our parents we do NOT choose the country of our birth and/or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing; and while it is true that we all are born, live, suffer and die, the thing that distinguishes someone like me, from a religious person is what we do in between. Many have the un-testable belief in the afterlife that it almost seems as if they don’t care about pain of this world. Compared with the eternal bliss/torture of Heaven or Hell, pain in this world is but a stubbed toe. Can someone tell me why SO many religious people have a DEEP-SEATED belief that in order to do well in the world, they have to suffer n’ sacrifice?

ALL MY LIFE

"All My Life" is a R&B love ballad recorded by Jodeci members (and brothers) K-Ci and JoJo. It was released as a single from the duo's album Love Always.
It was K-Ci and JoJo's second number-one song, following 2Pac's "How Do U Want It" (on which they were credited as featured vocalists). "All My Life" had earned enough airplay to debut on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 at number fifteen on March 28, 1998, when the single was released to retail stores. It later jumped to number one and stayed there for three weeks.

5 MISTAKES YOU MAKE TO SCARE HIM AWAY

1- Being too easy to please

The truth is that men LOVE compliments! We adore being told we’re hot, irresistible and look sexy. But throw out too many niceties too early on, laugh at all of our jokes (even when we both know they’re not funny), and always want to do what we want to do, and we’ll begin to think you’re being insincere. We’ll also think that you’re only trying to achieve one thing: to get into our pants. While that probably is your endgame, coming off like you have no opinion or spine instantly turns you into one of two things:the TOO-nice guy or the desperate gay man...and no man wants to date either. Instead, make us work for our compliments. We love a challenge and compliments go so much further when we feel we’ve actually earned them.

SUNDAY SCHOOL: THINGS THE BIBLE SAYS...

If you’re in the LGBT community, and you pay attention to why we’re still second class citizens, you undoubtedly have been referred to the Bible, and more specifically the translation of LEVITICUS 18:22 – Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Well, since it’s Sunday, I thought we’d all have a little Sunday School and find out what else the Bible says so we know who else to take away life, liberty, rights and freedoms from.
According to the good book (specifically the King James version) there’s plenty of things that qualify. I’ve summarized these, but trust me, it’s in there:
DEUTERONOMY 22:13-21 – If a man takes a bride who is discovered not to be a virgin, the woman is supposed to stoned to death. (I wonder if Sarah Palin is pre-planning stone baskets instead of rice for Bristol’s wedding?)
DEUTERONOMY 22:22 – If a married person has sex with someone else’s husband or wife (has an extra-marital affair), then both parties are suppose to be put to death.
MARK 10:1-12 – You can’t get a divorce, but if you do, and you marry again, then that’s adultery, so that would mean all parties, the original husband and wife, along with the second marriage parties are to be put to death. (Maybe Liz Taylor is proof that a cat has nine lives?)
LEVITICUS 18:19 – If a woman’s on her period, you’re both gonna be in big trouble if you have sex.
MARK 12:18-27 – If a man dies before he has kids, his widow has to have sex with all his brothers until she has a child, but if she makes her way through all the brothers without having one, then she is to be put to death.
DEUTERONOMY 25:11-12 – If a man gets into a fight with another man and his wife tries to help out by grabbing the other guy by the balls, then her hand is suppose to be cut off and she’s not to be given any pity.
LEVITICUS 19:27 – A man is not allowed to cut his hair, shave or trim his beard.
LEVITICUS 19:16 – If you gossip or tell others what your neighbors been up to, then you’re going to hell.
LEVITICUS 11:10 – Red Lobster is the gateway to hell. You can’t eat shellfish!
LEVITCUS 11:7 – Pork is NOT the other white meat. You eat pig, you’re an abomination!
LEVITICUS 19:19 – You can’t wear poly/cotton blends and you can let an Angus cow mingle with the likes of a Guernsey.
LEVITICUS 15:19-20 – When a woman is on her period, she’s suppose to be locked up for seven days, and if you touch her, then you’re unclean and anything she lays or sits on while she’s on her period is unclean, and has to go!
EPHESIANS 5:4 – You can’t cuss, say anything stupid or joke around.
EXODUS 20:8 – Depending on which day you think is the Sabbath (Saturday or Sunday) You’re not suppose to do anything all day long…Can I sign up for that one?
There’s a lot more, but I thought this should sum it up nicely. If we’re going to make the U.S. the great Christian nation the religious right wants us to be, I think we’re all in a great deal of trouble! Please contact your lawmaker today to make sure we start adhering to these laws of the Bible!

YOU GOTTA BE


"You Gotta Be" is a song recorded by the British pop and soul singer Des'ree. It was the first single from her second album I Ain't Movin.
It was released several times in the UK: first in 1994, then in 1995, and in 1999 in a remixed version following the success of Des'ree's previous singles "Life" and "Kissing You". The latter release of "You Gotta Be" charted in its highest position out of all three releases in the UK, peaking at #10. The 1995 release peaked at #5 in the United States and is the most popular version of the song. The remixed version of the song was released in 1998 in Spain, and went to #1 there.

In Italy, the song became popular after it was chosen as the soundtrack of some TV adverts, including those of Breil in 1996 and Ford Focus of 2000.[1][2] In Australia, circa early 2000s, this song was used in a Westpac bank advert.
The music video is filmed in black and white. In 1995, it was nominated in the category of "Best Female Video" at the MTV Video Music Awards, but did not win.
The year it was released, this song was used for the ending credits of The Next Karate Kid. A reworked version of this song was used in the Big Sing 2008. The Big Sing is to raise money for Childline by hundreds of schools singing this song at the same time across Ireland and England. If the number of children participating is big enough, the Big Sing will make it into the Guinness Book of World Records 2010.[3]
The song was covered by a cappella singing group DeCadence on their 2005 album Songs From the ClosetMiChi, a British/Japanese pop singer, also covered the song on her 2008 album MiChi Madness. The same year, Nature Living, a Japanese emo band, also covered the song in their album After All.
I am posting this song today because as of late I've been encountering many young gay men that feel that they will ALWAYS be lonely and love will NEVER find them. I feel that their issues are our issues and as someone that was 18-24 I know how lost one can feel. So I hope that as this song is played where ever in the world today, it gives them something to hold onto. And it my hope that they eventually come to understand that the threat they feel is something that is not even part of they life @ present. It is all about being present and acknowledging past mistakes and build yourself through them.

¡T.G.I.F.F!

OLDIE, BUT GOODIE: LET'S PLAY A GAME OF MUSICAL CHAIRS!

I THINK ABOUT WHEN THIS WAS WRITTEN & THEN I THINK ABOUT IT TODAY, SO MANY THINGS SAID HERE STILL STANDS. DID I EXPECT THERE TO BE CHANGE? DID I TAKE MY MESSAGE TO THEM? NAH I WASN’T BRAVE ENOUGH THEN…& NOW THAT I THINK ABOUT IT, I WONDER HOW MANY FELL BY THE WAY SIDE? I’VE COME TO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS LIFE IS EXACTLY HOW IT SHOULD BE & AS HARD AS IT MAY BE TO THINK ABOUT THE DAY THIS WRITTEN, I GET IT SO MUCH MORE NOW. SO NO MATTER WHER THE CHIPS FALL, I KNOW THAT EVERYTHING IS AS IT SHOULD BE…


There’s a wise old saying that “Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you respond or react to it.” This universal law of living is stunningly accurate and amazingly true and has vast power to impact the direction and the quality of the rest of your life. Think of it this way. Approximately 90% of the drama in your life is a direct result of how you responded and reacted to 10% of the events, problems and people in your life. So in essence we drive 90% of the stress and worry in our lives and we drive 90% of the anger, depression, sadness, regret, and jealousy within our lives. Stated another way, up to 90% of our lives is sometimes spent mishandling, mismanaging, and mis-communicating the situations, events, problems and the people within our lives. We walk with anger and we sleep with depression. We run with fear and we breathe with hesitancy. We live our lives wearing the vest of emotional baggage with both jealousy and regret as our personal confidants. Cynicism now flows from our mouths and doubt reigns over our presence. Now, the reality here is that many of us have fallen into destructive patterns. We need other options - but sadly, we have few…and after a visit to one of the local GAY CLUBS, this all was circulating in me, in how we become gay men.

Through faults of our own and others, I find it funny the games and tricks we play with each other, I say we because I am a part of this community as well. We have LITTLE BOYS playing with MEN and it would be fine if it was for something that could elevate them to the next level; but it isn’t. I feel that these KIDS play these games and not take life seriously because they have equated all men to the unfortunate negative actions of some. Be it an absent father from the home or even worse a father that lives there and it’s as if he doesn’t. So many of us are hurt and are looking for LOVE even though we won’t admit it. I am of the opinion that when these MEN meet these BOYS, this is when the game of ‘MUSCIAL CHAIRS’ begin.

And in my opinion, this is where the thoughts of a life-long partnership lose meaning with every beat and booty shaking. I feel that Pandora's Box has been unleashed and we have that which plagues us now. Is there any way to fix this? Or are we just too late? Do you even feel that this is a problem in our society? How do I convince these KIDS that they are more than what is in some MAN’S wallet? How can I convince that MAN that the car he bought just to trap the KIDS don’t make him happy? If this is how a gay man is defined I am sorry but our community is FUCKED! 

It took many years for me to understand and to refine what it meant to be a man... It meant sacrificing self for the sake of others. It meant hard work. It meant using every talent within me to make a way - when the way seemed to be closed off. It meant struggling financially and doing whatever was (legally) necessary to make ends meet. It meant long nights spent pacing the floor praying and planning how I was going to pay to keep the lights on the next day. It meant being humbled and at times even submissive to the point where I want to give up. My motivation finds me seeking to destroy the seductive lies that litter your way. I have come to realize that sometimes you have to lose everything to find yourself. I say look in the mirror, focus on the frame; on the illusions of the game. I would hope that we don’t forget our instant gratification that cannot hold or sustain us. Why leave yourself living like a pauper begging at the pearly gates for an ounce of humanity to repair your damaged soul?

Tell me what dreams you have for the future? What is does it mean to you now? Do you feel the same way you did when you first had this dream of a future? Did, do or will YOU LOVE YOURSELF? Do you realize that you died? Does it make you cry? Do you care that I care that you are lost? Funny how I say all this to you and still you pretend like I didn’t; I love the way you put me out of your mind when I write like this. I know that you will get what I am saying one day; I can only hope and pray that it’s not too late. I hope that as you dance to the beat and follow the rules of the game you come to realize that you’ve forgotten LOVE. Please don’t envy me; I don’t envy you! I only raise my voice in anger when the culprit sleeps in you. You are quick to judge my own reflection because you don’t see yourself when I stand in front of you. I am sorry that I can’t pardon your transgression with sympathy and I have cast a stone; I have dubbed it love. The bruise resulting still came from my hand in all that I do, I do for YOU! I am obsessed with living on the path of LOVE…I am a wretched man…the man that has come to save you. I want to remind you that your future is far greater than your past. I want you to know that your life is indeed a life worth living. I would for each one of us to by become a proactive and productive catalyst within our lives. I wish that we can become the mechanism for our own healing, self-actualization, and continuous spiritual growth. Once this is achieved, then joy and peace will become your new best friends and contentment will reign over your spirit forever…DAMN IF I STUB MY TOE ON ONE OF THOSE MUSICAL CHAIRS AGAIN!
