I will be enjoying lunch at home today. In my house – with my family. Because at the end of the day, eating chicken nuggets doesn’t make my family any stronger than wearing a rainbow T-shirt does. It’s the only place my voice is TRULY influential and I don’t need accouterments to send a message.
I won’t carry a picket sign in my dining room….for or against. I won’t chant or scream or pontificate at the podium of political correctness or moral absolutes. I won’t fear that my freedom of speech might be misconstrued as a judgement of hate or a stamp of approval.
I’ll simply teach my kids this…wherever we eat lunch, love people for who they are, where they are. It’s a message truly worth fighting for.
