I've quoted him before, but you just need to go read this now.
And to anyone who is feeling like an outsider, I say this to you:
You are NOT alone. We, the outsiders welcome you with open arms, homes and hearts. It is in the edges and the fringes you will find yourself. You will find your way, your life, your love. I want to be there when you do. I want you to be here when you can shake your head about those stupid kids you went to school with, and their narrow minded little lives. And I want you to be here to forgive them. At some point you will forgive them because your heart can hold only love and light and laughter.
