Forgive me if this post doesn't make complete sense, I have already taken my sleeping pill and its getting hard to concentrate.

I don't know if anyone here watch the TV show Glee on Fox. I watched the latest episode where a student tries to hang himself after his classmates found out he was gay. It made me think a lot about my gay friends in high school and everything that they went through, and are still going through. It reminded me of how I was physically attacked in school by a girl but the school didn't want it to look like sexual harassment so I needed to transfer high schools to get away. It is amazing how much power we have to bring people down and make them feel at their worst, but we cannot help ourselves to stand up and overcome it.

Something so simple as watching that episode of Glee really put me in a strange and hopeless mood. In most cases the pain and fighting will continue with little or no outcome. I don't believe the world will ever change, or that its possible that we can somehow snap out of it and have a decent life to live.

Hey Alaskah

It's funny-I was just looking of pix of all the tornado damage in KY and TN and I got this wave of sadness and hopelessness that rolled over me like a freight train. We lost everything in Katrina and it is hard to make sense of this cruel world sometimes. BUT thwn I saw a pic of an old man who found his faithful dog in the wreckage alive and they were hugging and it made me cry with joy.

SO, even in the midst of this world where all we hear is the bad news, we have to really dig deep ro see the good. It is there and I truly believe that the good will prevail. I make myself find 5 things to be grateful for every day. Some days I can come up with 20, some days I force myself to find 1.

Try it!! We have people who we love, a roof over our heads, maybe a job, food..we live in a free country. I know it is extremely hard to find good when you are down, so look hard, my dear.

Let us know how you are doing-I hope this passes soon,,,the world may not ever change so we have to concentrate on changing our little corner of it.

Take care
Maggie
