This year I'm thankful for people who have never called me a faggot. I'm thankful for people who respect me and understand the sacrifices I've made in my life. I'm thankful for people who understand the importance of education. I'm thankful for people who have an understanding that caring for an individual with Alzheimer's disease is tremendously hard work that deserves respect, sympathy and esteem.

I'm NOT thankful for people who have hurt me, attacked me, threatened me, disrespected me, bullied me, assaulted me.
