#SpiritDay On Being an Ally

It’s no surprise that Greg and I are anti-any kind of harassment, especially when it comes to race, sexuality, and religion. We are raising the kids to truly do what God would want, and love everyone. Today, October 19, is GLAAD’s Spirit Day, a day to stand up against bullying (especially of those in the LGBT community).

They weren’t man haters. They opened my eyes to a world in which “hell, we all struggle, let’s kick back a drink, dust off our flip flops, and move on TOGETHER” was key.
