Sometimes music reaches into the pit of my soul and pulls.
It tugs and my heart strings and everything else...
it brings tears to my eyes.
Same Love by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
is just one of those songs for me.
I don't understand why there is any intolerence for love in our society.
Whether you believe in god or not, isn't 'love' one of our basic emotions?
I have several gay friends, I can't imagine the struggle and emotions they feel on a daily basis. To me, they are friends, straight friends, gay friends, male friends, female friends.... they are friends, all friends.
They should be able to love who they wish....they are equal.
Everytime I hear this song I cry. When I'm in the car and it comes on the radio I crank it up and start singing and bawling....
ugly crying.... can't breath kinda cry.
Why can't we all just love the way we want?
Heck..... I'm crying just writing this post.
Listen for yourself...
Love thy neigbour.
