But still, it was great to see all these folks so dedicated to bringing the truth about GLBT people to college campuses around the country. Having done an action with Soulforce in the past, I know what a challenging, draining, and moving experience it is. I was able to share dinner with some of the riders and spent some time talking to one rider in particular, Carolyn, who patiently and graciously answered so many questions while trying to eat her dinner.
During one point in the following PFLAG presentation, a lesbian and her partner (of 17 years? 21 years? anyway, it was a long time, just in case you're paying attention Alan Chambers) had us sing two songs. The last song was just the simple chorus How Could Anyone written by Libby Roderick.
How could anyone ever tell youNot surprisingly, this hits me in a pretty tender spot right now. I couldn't hold back the tears. I bought a recording of the song on iTunes and have played it endlessly for the last two nights. I need to hear this message so badly. Maybe someone reading my blog does, too.
You were anything less than beautiful?
How could anyone ever tell you
You were less than whole?
How could anyone fail to notice
That your loving is a miracle;
How deely you're connected to my soul.
