I have to believe you were an angel with a lesson for us all about unconditional love. Tolerance. Acceptance.
Though you were judged, more about you never passed judgement. Even when people expressed hate toward you, story you showed them love. You celebrated each person for exactly who they were, nothing more or less.
That’s not to say you were soft, or a pushover – you were a damn firecracker. But you could defend yourself and your stance in a heated discussion, and then buy your adversary a drink.
Because all that really matters in this life, is love. Love is the only thing you leave behind, and the only thing you have with you when you go. I wish you had known how much you were loved.
We can’t change what happened, but we can change ourselves and live the legend that you left us.
May we never miss an opportunity to give love to each person we meet, for everyone is fighting a hard battle.
