It's just that simple...

I have fought tooth and nail with God over what HE wants from me. I keep saying I'm not worthy or deserving of the positions I'm placed in but it is truly HIS purpose and not mine. The truth is I'm scared. I'm afraid of what's to come. I've been lucky so far. No rejection, spiteful words from people who don't know me, no backlash for being HIV positive. I know we would all love to think people will just accept you and get over it. So knowing that, I'm being prepared for much more. Not just for rights of women, Christians, blacks, or those infected with HIV. Our calling is so much more. We are called to deal with all forms of injustice. It's just that simple. From #bringbackourgirls taken by terrorists to the death of unarmed teenager #MichaelBrownJr. From fighting against the criminalization of those infected with #HIV to the rights of families traditional and non-traditional. Really it's just that simple.
