Pride

I was sitting in the car this afternoon with my mom on the way home from the airport (I'm home for a quick weekend between finishing my research year and resuming MS4), when she retold a story about an encounter that happened this week where someone wanted her to sign a "gay rights" petition.   She retold how she told the organizer "yes, I support gay rights, my daughter's gay."  

I've been out to here for 13 years and never once have I heard her say those words.  What a long way we've come...

Happy pride ya'll!  Instead of going to dyke march & pride, I'm spending this shabbos resting and enjoying some quiet time (& kick the cold that has been trying to attack all week).  The next 11 weeks are going to bring a whole heck of a lot of transition back to med school and being my best on away rotations.  Time to rest up before the fun begins!
