Even as little as a month ago, I wouldn't have had the guts to write something about my beliefs on a controversial issue on Facebook. I mean, it is just Facebook, and it's probably a little stupid/naive to think I can put a thoughtfully written post there, but I have enough faith in most of my friends, family, and acquaintances to believe that they'll extend the same decency of thoughtfulness to me.
And, of course, I made it clear that I expect compassion, thoughtfulness, and kindness in any responses to my post, since making your expectations clear is good pedagogy and I had my methods class earlier today. It's also good practice in relationships, perhaps?
This is a little success that I'm recording. A little bit of honesty and bravery: the first a force of habit, and the latter a struggle.
