  •  And What We Think Can or Should "Never" Happen... (9+ / 0-)

    ...often changes dramatically in our lives.

    How many people do we know--indeed, how many of us--have changed our views on homosexuality over the years?  How many have changed their views on same-sex marriage in just the last five years?  

    "Always" and "never," "everything" and "nothing" are dangerous words and should be used with caution and deliberateness.

    •  that's the beauty of this site, (9+ / 0-)

      Some of the people I read most intently are the ones I'm normally in disagreement with in hopes they'll add something I'd otherwise never consider.

      In fact, you'd laugh, I wanted my first diary to be about a diarist here that I really didn't like at first, but was both a great writer and a great thinker, and I thought to scroll through some of his past diaries in order to write my own, on what it would be like to spend a day getting to know him. I still think about doing it, I guess it be my real first diary, just a bit late.
