I want to thank everyone who read my previous post The School On The Hill — https://runrodrun.wordpress.com/2014/06/01/the-school-on-the-hill/ — and to especially thank all who reached out with such kind words of support and love. Thank you all!
I also wanted to be sure to include this “epilogue” if you will.
Although my highschool years were challenging, this sign — along with many others offering similar messages of love, acceptance, and inclusivity — now reigns in the halls of my old alma mater. These signs are beacons of hope and inspiration. And I am greatly heartened to witness this beautiful transformation.
25-30 years ago these signs were utterly unheard of, particularly from ones so young. But now here they are, created by such young minds, and promoted by those in charge of educating and guiding those young minds.
Let us continue to hope and pray that this paradigm shift becomes the rule and that hatred of all forms and guises becomes the very glaring and progressively rare exception.
For now, I can say gratefully, we have come a very very long way.
