If you follow my blog you know that I believe in equality for all and have zero tolerance for hate and bigotry. We all have to live in this same world and we share much more in common than we do in petty differences.
Certainly the earthquake in Japan highlights how we all share the same goals and we all suffer together. The world has watched and hoped and prayed (if you choose to so do) for the well being of Japan and the Japanese people.
But then something happens, like what happened to 23 year old Justin Alensa, and we are reminded that the world is still full of hate.
I ask you to please watch this video from Justin, who recounts in explicit detail how he was assaulted and left with a fractured skull at a gas station by an anonymous gay-basher, and worse yet, was refused help by multiple bystanders.
No one should have to feel as frightened, ashamed, and alone as he did. It is every one's responsibility to ensure that these kind of horrific and disgraceful acts of bigotry and hate end now.
