Sticks and Stones…

There are a number of issues in this story: (1)no one should be ridiculed; (2)no one should be called names of any sort; (3)Personally, I do not have an issue with anyone’s homosexuality–nevertheless, in this story, being labelled “gay” is said in an offensive way to this young boy–this should never happen! (4)WHO teaches children to “name-call”…to call someone “gay?” in a derogatory way? This is a sad reflection of the adult models in the lives of these children.

    Quite true. I just don’t know why some people say so. I have a classmate who have been saying bad things of many classmates 😦 My ears are sick of it

  2. Yes, it is so difficult to hear! I find I have to address it when it happens…I may lose a friend…but, that is not a person I want as a friend in any case. If we do not address it, then it continues…people need to be educated…gently…but educated.

    Isn’t nature beautiful? One of these days when things settle down a bit in my life, I’ll have to tell you about my pet sparrow, Benjamin, I had years ago. Come to think of it, maybe, I should write a short story about him. Whatcha think?
