Hop Against Homophobia and Transphobia
Here is the main page of the blog hop
If there is one thing I have never understood about human nature it's prejudices and hatred of fellow human beings based on what someone is. Diversity is the spice of life, I think it would be a boring world if we all looked alike and thought alike. I've been lucky to have grown up in New York, a place where you are exposed to so many different cultures and religions and people from all over the world. I find the same thing living in the DC area. It's more important about who a person is on the inside and not their religion or color of their skin or who they love or what gender they are.
I'm Jewish and I've had to deal with anti-Semitism and could never figure out why, but then I don't know if there really is an answer to the whys.
I had the same questions when I was getting bullied in school. That certainly didn't help my self-esteem. I still have problems with self-esteem on occasion. probably the scars that never truly go away no matter how much time has past.
All I can say is it's time to stop the hatred and learn to love one another.
In honor of this blog event I am giving away a copy of one of my books. I was hoping to have a re-tweaked version of my book "Catch of the Day" ready for this blog but I've had some difficult times over the past few months so it's been hard for me to write much of anything. I hope to get "Catch of the Day" available once again. I DO have a wonderful new cover for it, too.
To enter my contest please leave your name and contact info. I'll be awarding a prize on May 28th.
