The sun rises on a new dawn. Yet few of us realize the debt we owe to those who dwell among us; anonymous, seemingly ordinary, whom destiny brought together to repair, to heal, to save us from ourselves. If evolution can do this for even the smallest creatures, then why not these human beings? And they’re still out there, in the shadows, in the light. We pass them on the street, never suspecting, never knowing. Do they even know yet, that they are bound together by a common purpose, a glaring reality to be extraordinary?” And when destiny does anoint them, how do they hide from it? How long can they dwell in the shadows before either fate or their own flawed humanity draws them out into the light again? And how will they know what awaits them when it finally does?
(Quote above from Heroes, Season 2, Episode 1)
Yes, I believe it in my heart — that if we are courageous enough to be truly ourselves, then we will be able to see our character’s real strengths. And when we see it, if we so desire, we can use it in our journey to be the best that we can be, to be extraordinary.
“National Coming Out Day is observed on October 11 by members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities and their allies. It is highly encouraged for participants in this movement to wear identifying symbols, such as the pink triangle, the Greek letter lambda, and rainbows, in jewelry and on their clothing, to demonstrate their presence in all walks of life, all ages and all ethnic groups.” (From Wikipedia)
Coming out, or not coming out, is a choice each of us make. For me, there is no right or wrong way in this issue. My only take is that we be true, first and most importantly, to ourselves. Come in first, before even thinking of coming out.
Thank you, and world peace!
