I have gotten such a wonderful reception regarding the article I wrote. You can read it here What I Believe. I was really nervous about getting hate mail, but I have gotten so many positive e-mails and face to face thank you's that if I got hate mail now it wouldn't really phase me.
I still want to blog about pride but things are still serious with my Grandfather. If you had a chance to read the article, leave me a comment and tell me what you think. There was a great picture of our family with the minister, but they didn't run that online. I will try and scan it later.
