Youjuu and William, thank you for the support and for the compliments. I hope did help a few people that may have been silent in the crowd, that I gave them some courage to take with them. I heard that about a week ago, the two girls who I know very well but through other friends - we haven't realy talked much before this event, But I heard that I was used as an example of good when the two girls who have been very much so in love with each other stepped up to their parents and came out and revealed to them and to us, our little group of friends, that they had actualy been together since hey were 6. It started out as a cutesie little thing, but once they started to get older they began to fall deeper in love. To hear that my name was used to stand infront of their parents and that I was the inspiration of the amazing courage they showed, well I blush.. i do. When I heard a dirrect quote from one of their other friends and it being,
"Lusha stood infront of an entire school, she stood in front of every one, she stood in front of those who may wish to harm her in fear of her difference with out as much as a flinch, she looked every one in the eyes, she looked at me in the eyes directly as every one recieved from her even from the back farthest row. Her eyes were filled with love, understanding and kindness. She shared that with everyone, those who would abbandon her and those who would love her. She shared that with me. She trusted and loved every one in that room in those bleachers, knowing what some have done to her and not even knowing others the slightest bit. She loves me, And I love her. And I love my girl friend as much as I love you mother and as much as I love you dad, Why can't you love me back?"
When I heard that, I wanted to go up to them and firstly thank them, but also set clear that I am not any kind of celebrity nor did i intend this thread to make me. I didn't mean for any of this to be glamourizing my standing and walking in front of the school, But it does make me happy that I am helping even though it may be indirectly but still helping people to find that courage. The first day they got picked on and teased and ostrisized fairly harshly. That is when they came and found me and borrowed me from my math class.
When I heard what was going on, I was sickened. I was sickened because people cannot accept each other for who they are and be kind to oe another. They started to hang out with me though, and I promised that I would protect them and support them. I mention this for two reasons, One to Thank you Both the NDK Community and the Otaku society as a whole for being generally accepting and kind not just to each other and those who love anime, but to those who come to you in your every day life needing your kindness, youre love, your guidance or what ever it may be. I thank you for taking hat person by the shoulders and embracing them and helping them. I want to endource kindness through out the world, and I want it to extend to every social class, culture, sub culture, underground culture economic standing, beliefs, gender, race, orientation and mental standing. I want it to extend through out every health standing, be you healthy or ill.
I wish to see more arms open and for age old barriers to become a thing of the past and forgotten. To see how this thread alone is helping that, it makes me happy. I hope that you find people who love you and love the ones you love with out fear. I am always here for any one that might need a bit of extra motivation, a boost or just simply love. If you need a shoulder to cry on, or some one to love, I am here for all of you. I hope that I inspire every one to be more kind to one another by reminding every one of the kindness that they felt when they met some one in their lives that accepted what others wouldn't and that every one is equal even in our differences that creat our individuality.
