Colleen’s prompt words this week for her poetry challenge are hate and pride.
It brings to mind a conversation I had with my daughter about the Pride Festival in Brighton this August. My daughter has recently left Brighton (having completed her University degree) and missed Pride but some of her friends were at the event and were shocked at some idiots (only a few thank goodness) who’d come along to cause trouble and disharmony. I just can’t understand this kind of mentality. What is wrong with people? Love is love, that’s my view. People are people, whatever their sexual orientation, religion, or colour of their skin.
Fortunately, the event was enjoyed by a huge amount of people and this kind of stupid behaviour wasn’t at large.

I thought along similar lines this week too Marje. I get so annoyed when people cannot accept or even tolerate other people’s love, whether it be same sex, inter-racial or any other kind of love.
Yes indeed it is incomprehensible to me. People really need to get a grip, and focus on what is important.
Exactly! What gives them the right to judge, anyway?! 🙂
Perfect, Marie! We were on the same wave length this week. Love it! <3
Yes we were! Absolutely. <3
Beautiful and very well put Marje 💜
As Judy says, what gives the big mouths the right to judge? Bigger mouths? Smaller brains? Absence of heart?
Definitely absence of heart. Their loss.
You wish they’d shut up though.
Never a truer word said Jane.
