This week is Transgender Awareness Week. I love the LGBTQ+ community and I wanted to write a poem to spread the love and celebration of the Transgender community.

Born

We Were born to be loved

Yet we're not

We were born to be accepted

Instead we are ridiculed

We were born to live

But people wish we were dead

We may have been born in a different body

But that does not mean we weren't born

You are still you

And I am still me

Nothing ever changed, and nothing ever will

We were born on this Earth so that we would be cared for

No matter our race, gender, sexuality, or any other difference

Because none of those things make us different

We are still the same

We were all born

And we will all die

So please take my hand

Since I don't care if you were "born in the wrong body"

Because I'm just happy you were born

Author's Note: Please share and spread this poem to support Transgender Awarness!!!

Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Memorial Day 2018 occurs on Monday, May 28. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.
