There is no joy like the joy
of unleashing the human spirit.
There is no laughter like the laughter
of those who are happy with others.
There is no purpose more noble than
to build communities of acceptance for all.
This is our glory.

Today is National Coming Out Day, created in 1988 to encourage gay people
to take their next steps in speaking their truth to themselves, family and
friends, and the wider community. When LGBT people come out, it is an
affirmation of our ability to love and a statement about our quest to find
love and acceptance in a society that still struggles significantly with
issues around minority sexual orientation and gender identity. National
Coming Out Day was created within the LGBT community, but I think everyone
Unleashing your spirit is about celebrating the fact that YOU are an
indispensable part of this world and regardless of your orientation or how
unkindly you are treated by others, this world NEEDS your best self and your
unique contributions. I hope you can celebrate today by UNLEASHING YOUR
SPIRIT and encouraging others to do the same.
