Two notes in two days from the bears! Being gay is just another kind of love. The bears inform us about the legalization of gay marriage in Ireland. Here in Canada too, people of the same gender can marry each other. The bears place emphasis on a number of points. Not everyone supports gay marriage, although, it was a majority rule. We always need to respect all views. How can we be all we can be when we're not allowed to be true to ourselves? The bears say, as long as you're not hurting yourself or others, you should be able to be true to yourself. If you can't be true to yourself, maybe you're not allowed to be or maybe you're too afraid for to be, to remember, that gay marriage didn't just happen overnight. It took a lot of courage, for people to stand up for something they believe in. What do you believe in? Will you take a stand? Taking the first step is the hardest.
