Once Seen, Always There

This morning I was researching about babies and the way their memory works.  It’s quite a bit more complicated than most people seem to believe.  For example, toddlers can still remember, albeit subconsciously, people they met only once years beforehand as babies.  Also, the brain of a baby is, in fact, actually able to process memories.  It’s just that it takes years in order for the memories to become “more complex”.

I find this incredible.  Once people see something, that memory stays stored in the brain forever.  It doesn’t matter that the memory may be subconscious; it’s still there.  This fact has gotten me through plenty of tough times, and it truly is a testament to the power of human’s memory itself.

Birds’ Music

I always enjoy waking up to the sound of birds.  They tend to chirp in the mornings and afternoons outside my bedroom window.  Sometimes they even sing.  Lately I’ve also been fascinated by the sheer diversity of shapes, sizes, and colors that birds come in.  It’s interesting to note that not all species of birds can fly.  I only recently found out birds are actually considered to be dinosaurs.  These are all reasons I’m motivated by listening to birds.

Gay and Bisexual Equality

When it comes to being gay or bisexual, there’s nothing to cure.  Homosexuality and bisexuality are not diseases or mental illnesses.

The gay and bisexual children of this generation are still growing up believing that their love is of less value than that of their heterosexual counterparts.  It’s not right.  They need to be protected from such harmful feelings.

When will gay and bisexual people gain equality?  It will happen, someday.  Human dignity is too strong to let the forces of hate and ignorance overcome.  People must spread the word for equality not just here in the US, but all around the world.

Gay and bisexual people are not second class citizens.  Equality demands the constitutional right for same sex couples to marry.

Gays and bisexuals will not be silenced.  They will win the fight for equality.  Love will win.
