Oppressed people need their history.
In ways big and small, it shapes the landscape and shows the mountains and valleys. It cautions us, keeps victories alive, and solidifies us for what’s left to be done. Every now and then history becomes palpable, though when it does, you could no more explain it than you could the wind.
That was my experience at PFLAG San Diego's 11th annual scholarship award ceremony where, as I saw it, the past present and future briefly coalesced.
PFLAG SD’s scholarship awards ceremonies have always been uplifting events.
