I considered just posting pictures without text as a change of pace for today's shirt.
But as a writer, I am not sure I can be silent. Maybe I will try this in a future blog post. Though I am not sure I am going to have a better shirt for which it's worth letting the picture carry the meaning than this one.
As it is, I am not going to write much, both due to necessity and because the image really does speak volumes and much more eloquently than I can.
I will share the following anecdote.
A few years back, there was an incident at Western Michigan University (WMU). I do not recall the details (and they really do not matter), but it was a hateful incident, a case of discrimination. The WMU president wrote a letter to the university to promote "tolerance." This struck me as the wrong message. If I am not part of the majority, I do not want to be tolerated.
I want to be accepted.
