You know, time can get away from you (from time to time) and before you know it you've forgotten to take the time to do something you meant to do (when you had the time).
To make a long repetative story short, whether we mean to or not, we put things off. To remedy the fact that my post is late this week, here it is.
Life can deal you things that are, at first, perplexing but given time to pause and think, raises some good questions. Such was the case when Gladys and I went to the grocery store this week.
While waiting in the checkout line (that's the one that the stores keep to appease us oldies who won't use those darn machines) Gladys gave me a shock. Well, to be more precise, her response to the actions of two young men in front us is actually what shocked me. As one of the young men reached over and got a bit familiar with the backside of the other, Gladys said in her firm (I've raised children) voice "HEY...don't get creepy!" Now I'm not certain which left me more surprised....the first action...or Gladys's reaction!
I must say now, in hind sight, no pun intended (well maybe just a little) that Gladys raised a point that perhaps we should all be thinking of as the Nation rushes to follow the President's lead to make homosexuality acceptable in everyday society. That point being, where does one's freedom of expression end and another's freedom of speech begin (and which one will win out once the flood gates are open).
In Canada, freedom of action or expression has already won, as laws are in place which could have got Gladys in trouble for what she said. And there it is! Freedom of expression over Freedom of Speech.
A lot to think of before you make a snap decision on homosexual rights and the future of your Nation. As I can assure you, it won't stop with just this one issue. You may find yourself on one side today and another tomorrow.
That's my opinion and you're entitled to it.
