shooting of Molly Judith Olgin and Mary Christine Chapa--a teenage gay couple--at Texas Park. We don't yet know whether this attack was anti-gay or anti-something-else, but oh my gosh, I know what I suspect. After all, it doesn't always get better, does it? Still, that's no reason not to give to the "It Gets Better" Project, who I'll plug here because of the great work they do. Frankly, I believe education is always part of the answer. And of course, we'll keep being proud of those who come out, whether young or old or in between.
So on the "pride" note, Chicago's Pride Parade reached record numbers this year, and included interfaith coalition included Mormons, Buddhists and Catholics. Now that really is something to be proud about--congratulations, Chicago!
