"dear america, when you tell gay americans that they can't serve their country openly or marry the person they love, you're telling that to kids too. so don't be fucking shocked and wonder where all these bullies are coming from that are torturing young kids and driving them to kill themselves because they're different. they learned it from watching you."
THIS IS YOUR LIFE. DO WHAT YOU LOVE. IF YOU DONT LIKE SOMETHING CHANGE IT. IF YOU DON'T LIKE YOUR JOB,QUIT. IF YOU DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TIME. STOP WATCHING TV. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE STOP. THEY WILL BE WAITING FOR YOU WHEN YOU START DOING THINGS YOU LOVE. STOP OVER ANALYZING. LIFE IS SIMPLE. ALL EMOTIONS ARE BEAUTIFUL. WHEN YOU EAT. APPRECIATE. OPEN YOUR MIND, ARMS AND HEART TO NEW THINGS AND PEOPLE. WE ARE UNITED IN OUR DIFFERENCES. ASK THE NEXT PERSON YOU SEE WHAT THEIR PASSION IS AND SHARE YOUR INSPIRING DREAM WITH THEM. TRAVEL OFTEN: GETTING LOST WILL HELP YOU FIND YOURSELF. SOME OPPORTUNITIES ONLY COME ONCE. SEIZE THEM. LIFE IS ABOUT THE PEOPLE YOU MEET AND THE THINGS YOU CREATE WITH THEM SO GO OUT AND START CREATING. LIFE IS SHORT. LIVE YOUR DREAM AND WEAR YOUR PASSION.
"you know when I was six, the teacher asked me to think about something beautiful. I said 9/11. i saw it on tv in this carehome with the sound on mute. the teacher told me how many people had died and all the other kids in the class cried. I knew then, that I was...wrong. I guess that's why my parents gave me up, because they knew too. right from the beginning." (frankie)
