In one of my last blogs, I wrote about a very aggressive form of expression. I’ve thought a lot about it this week till I stumbled into a preacher at school.
Here I am, whoever I am, standing in the midst of angry adults.
Let me set the scene. So, you’ve got the main guy with a big cross screaming and going on about how homosexuals are going to hell. (I’m sure you know where I was thinking I should tell him to go…)
Then, there are a few people listening intently to each word coming out of his mouth. But behind them is a mob of people who were aggravating the situation by mocking the preacher. I would have been in that crowd, fighting back. Till I noticed the po po standing against a tree in the corner. Just waiting to break up a fight.
How juvenile of a situation? So, I watched from a distance. And thankfully, from where I was standing, I could see a line of women dressed with plastic poles outstretched with white cloth, blocking main traffic from the screaming. In silence. They sure looked like angels to me.
I just smiled because they were using their voices in an unselfish and nonjudgmental manner. I empower you to check out LGBTQ Affairs at the University of Arizona.
