Great Words: The Sun

“…There is a lot of crazy shit going on in the world right now.  People are being exposed to different lifestyles, secrets are coming to light, abuse and torture seem to come to the surface in the news daily.  I’ve been constantly shocked by the news – by bad behavior, by terrible acts.  I think, though, that we’re really coming into a time in the Sun.  You can’t be a secret racist anymore.  You can’t hurt kids as easily and get away with it.  There are cameras everywhere – the light is shining into the deepest corners of our world and exposing ugliness.  Good.  It’s uncomfortable to look at raw ugliness in the light, but the more we see of it, the less likely we are to ignore it in the future.

“A lot of people are really struggling with the status quo shifting.  It used to be ‘the love that dare not speak its name’, you know?  Now they’re being asked to be kind about gender reassignment and poverty and racial tension and gay marriage and it’s uncomfortable.  I think that those are growing pains.  We’re all being pushed and encouraged to welcome everyone into the light with us.  It’s going to take a while.  It’s going to hurt our eyes a bit.  But that warmth?  It will grow.  We will all share the light and realize that it helps all of us grow, together.

“It’s all right.”
