Death from Exposure

“Word is, he died from exposure.”

I sincerely hope that fear doesn’t cause people to retreat, physically or emotionally.

I saw on another site that a friend of mine received in the mail today an anonymous package full of hateful items. Sent to him because he is open about his sexual orientation. Sent to him because he is open about being a progressive person.

I sincerely hope that fear doesn’t cause us to retreat from one another.

There’s a passage of scripture that describes the ideal state for humanity; it is shortly after Creation and the first humans are standing in front of one another.

“And they were naked and unashamed.”

They were completely vulnerable, completely exposed, all of their differences just out there.  Literally out there. And they were unashamed.

They did not die from exposure.

I hope we can be that way.
