The one and only, Dave from New Zealand, posted the following as a comment a couple of days ago.
Today I am posting it on the blog main page for everyone to read and comment.

Dear Dave,
As always, thank you for staying engaged and keeping the conversation going.

Hey Hey Obama, why aint you Gay?
You’r Black, your bright, why aint you Gay?
Don’t you know that more kids kill themselves in Afghanistan than get shot by the Taliban?
Don’t you know that Gays in the military can die for their country but not for their sexual liberation?
Don’t you know that many of our best and brightest Gay students are being bullied to death?
Cmon Obama, be an honorary Gay and stand up to the reactionary destruction of our kids today.

A fellow NYU parent (am I still one? I am not sure) from California, sent me the following links that highlight the tragic loss this past week, of three young people to suicide, thirteen to nineteen years old in age.
I wish there was a way of knowing the names and ages of every single person who dies of suicide every day, and publishing it.

Thank you Lenette for sending this.
Our hearts are full of sorrow for all this loss, my own prayers are always with those suffering.

I was going to finish yesterday’s post today, but I still don’t feel up to it, I think I’ll go to yoga instead.

A domani – See you tomorrow

  5. You actually make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I to find this matter to be really one
    thing that I feel I’d never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely huge for me. I’m having a look forward for your subsequent
    put up, I will attempt to get the cling of it!
