I chose this top to cover first because it’s something I feel so strongly about. Every day I see people judging, pre-qualifying, discriminating, bullying…and it infuriates me.

Never judge someone based on their appearance. Do not treat them differently just because they look different. Every person has a heart that beats and a heart that breaks.

Tattoos: Expressions placed on the skin to represent who you are, a time, a place. Just as a photo freezes time and holds onto the memory, so does a tattoo. The number of tattoos you have or the placement of them should not affect how society views you as a person. I’ve gotten a few turned up noses when I show my shoulder tattoo at ritzy places, but those people who judge need to realize that times have changed and I can be just as classy sporting my ink and my exterior doesn’t even do justice to describe what is in my heart. “My body is a journal in a way. It’s like what sailors used to do, where every tattoo meant something, a specific time in your life when you make a mark on yourself, whether you do it yourself with a knife or with a professional tattoo artist.” —- Johnny Depp

Weight: From a size 0 to a size 40, we are all beautiful. Our exterior is just merely a shell that protects what lies within. There is no perfect size. Beautiful is healthy, curves, smiles, personality, self-confidence. For the people who will leave a significant other because of weight gain, shame on you. Your goal should be to help everyone be healthy. Coach people on how to eat well, exercise well, live well. “Ideal teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross, then having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own.” — Nikos Kazantzakis

Disability: God’s way of saying, “you’re unique, you’re special, you’re strong.” To the corporate guy who flaunts his money, his success, his fancy car…take a step back and think about what a person with a disability faces daily. Can you look death eye to eye and not flinch? Can you take handfuls of medications and treatments daily that make you sick and still keep smiling? Can you hear and see people making fun of something they do not understand and still stay strong? Instead of spending time on the golf course, volunteer at a children’s hospital. Open your eyes to the world.”The moral test of government is how it treats those who are in the dawn of life . . . the children; those who are in the twilight of life . . . the elderly; and those who are in the shadow of life . . . the sick . . . the needy . . . and the disabled.” – Hubert H. Humphrey
