Love your Levinas connection!

Tim,

You have a the gift of insight. My brother-in-law is gay and felt the all the things you discuss. He knew it early on as a young boy. He hid it from us all and he is one of the kindest people I know.

Diversity and acceptance can challenge us all. My husband was in the Navy, in the old days of teh Navy ( back in the 40 or 50's a gay sailor might have gone suddenly missing. We never shared that with our friends, for many were not accepting of such things.

I have also learned another life lesson... "never say never and I wouldn't do that." It seems each time I have done so I have been tested on my very words spoken with great conviction heart at the time.

Great words to grow on.

Kim Cox
