When I first appeared on the world the hospital staff decided to declare me as being a "boy", that is, a "male".
This was not my choice nor was I allowed a chance to decide what I wanted to be. Long before I had a chance to explore myself I was assigned a gender and forced to live up to all its stereotypes and burdens.
This went on for 12 years. I had always known that I was different and special and I could always feel that there was something within me, yearning to come out and spread its wings. One day during my twelfth year I encountered a special person who freed me. From that day forward, I learned how to fly and to discover my true self. I've been flying ever since and like the butterfly, I want to visit all the flowers and encourage them to bloom.
This is what we all deserve.

American nationalism only creates wars, death and economic and environmental destruction. Intelligent free-thinking people understand this and you will not find them today blowing things up, making loud noises or smoke. You will not see them displaying the American flag. Instead they will be thinking and doing things that make the world a better place by recyling, eating organic foods or by reading. They will be supporting President Obama and helping him transform America into a progressive place that respects the diversity of world and help Americans beome productive citizens of the world.
