A Pride Challenge with a Stern Point of View

It’s June and that makes it Pride month. This year will mark 46 years since the Stonewall Riots. Our world has changed a lot in those years for many of us, but untold numbers worldwide still live in fear of punishment and even death. So while we celebrate Pride throughout cities in our Western culture, let us not forget those amoung  us that are still held in prisons of fear and those in cultures that keep people just like us repressed and punished for simply being alive.

Each year Kelly Stern over at Rambling Along in Life challenges other bloggers to post this pic for Pride

And this year he’s asked us to post this pic of his beloved Pino that he lost during the past year

My gratitude to Kelly for reminding us the true importance of our Pride celebrations. Happy Pride month to all. Let us keep marching forward toward equality for all and remember those who marched before us giving us the freedoms we enjoy today.
