Imagine, Just Imagine!


I came across this last evening while reading through the Huffington Post online.

I was always a fan of Sally Field and this only carves it in stone for me!

I do hope you can take the time to view and listen to this, it views very quickly and has a great message for us all.

  1. Hi, Sally delivered a great speech,full of emotion, serious words, and so much love. We all need to listen to this as it applies to so much in life, not only a mother of a gay son.Let us accept others as they are , and think on the words from Shakespeare. " Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds,or bends with the remover to remove",Thankyou for sharing this with us, Greetings from jean

    1. Now if we all had paid more attention to Shakespeare over the past 400 plus years or so we would have been further ahead on accepting differences.
      Jean, thanks so much for this and I am with you, Sally had me in tears too. To hear this from a mother's mouth......just imagine!

  2. OMG!! Sally said F%CK!!
    ;D~
    If only all parents were like that...
    It'll be the day when sexual orientation is a non-issue,
    for parents, for the individual concerned,
    and for all that he/she meets in his/her lifetime.
    When I was a kid,
    I never figured things would be the way they are now,
    and while there is still room for improvement,
    if we are not complacent,
    the future may be even brighter...
    IF we are not complacent,
    as we still have plenty of opposition from those
    who would like nothing more than for us
    to disappear again in the closet...
    Thanx 4 sharing!!
    :)~

    1. Don't you just LOVE Sally!! Spunky little thing she is!
      I too thought my life would be one of 'living two lives'...one professionally and one private. I am so happy to have lived to see the day when two men or two women wouldn't think twice of expressing their love for one another in public by just holding hands. And, this is seen now one a regular basis here in Halifax!!! Imagine!

    2. Well, my mom ignored me for two years, my dad stalked me and I felt miserable in all of this. But when I think of a friend that, when he came out to his family, his father ran after him with a kitchen knife, I think I prefer having been ignored... but not stalked!!
      One day maybe, one day, if the Tories can go away...

    3. Well, that's an easy one isn't it!! I think maybe they are digging their own grave as we speak.

    1. It sure was, Ivan! I was blubbering from the start as soon as Sam said whom he was. And then Sally began.....

  4. A wonderful speech from a very inspiring woman. I've always liked Sally Field. Now I like her even more :) And if her message of love could be applied to every diversity in life (sexuality, culture, religion, race...etc...), what a great world this would be.

    2. Hi John, my Dad is settling in. When I saw him on the weekend, he looked exhausted. It's like visiting him in a very large hotel complex with lots of room. He has his own room and bath. I hope he will adjust and begin to take advantage of all they have to offer......he has a great view of the garden which is lovely. Thanks for asking.

    3. Hi Sharon.....I know a lot of mothers would feel the same. I guess it's just the 'others' we hear about.
