Personally. I was going to stay out of this conversation, but, well as
you can see.
My son Sean is an Eagle Scout, 16 in Nov., he has an ear ring and even
dyed his hair once. He is proud to wear his Scout uniform and let
people know that he has been in Scouting for 10 years. He also carries
a small hand bag full of needles with him everywhere,( A little blue
purse), he's diabetic. With both my son and my daughter, I am proud to
go anywhere. Usually my wife and I receive lots of compliments on both
of them. They are normal teenagers trying to fit into their peer
groups. They are not perfect by any means, but it would be unfair to
not allow either of them into whatever group they wanted to be part of
just because of their appearance.
When I see someone that doesn't meet my standards, I stop for a
minute and ask myself, why don't I like this or that?, What have they
done for me not to like them? Who are they? What do they do? I could
go on put you get my point.
Try a little test. The next time you come across one of these
horrible creatures, set down with him and find out who he really is,
before you pass judgment. If that doesn't work, look into a full length
mirror and see what you look like first:~)
Enough said Have a good Day YIS TL
