FreeThinker Posted August 2, 2014 Report Share Posted August 2, 2014 I was driving through town this afternoon and listening to something on NPR, I'm not sure what, but a gay man was speaking before an audience and describing how he was grateful for what he had learned from the years of abuse and prejudice he had experienced because it made him find the ecstasy in ordinary joys-- a wonderful thought. He then told the story of his fiftieth birthday party at which his four-year-old son told the man's husband that he wanted to give a speech. The husband brought the son to the microphone, made a big to-do about the boy wanting to speak and then held him up to the microphone, whereupon the four-year-old said, "I'm glad it's Daddy's birthday. I'm glad we have cake. And, Daddy, if you were little, I'd be your friend." I got tears in my eyes when I heard that. Quote Link to comment
