Neo-Pagan Modern Thoughts On Society

Would those which we have lost be proud of how far we have come here? Or would they shake their heads in disbelief and vanish back into the misty isle of the Lady?

This last tuesday, May 18th, 2010, marked the first every HIV Memorial Candle Light Vigil in Sacramento. It was a sweet, but humble occasion, filled with many memories of friends long past and many people still fighting for their lives and heavily reliant on our wonderful inept RX vendors.

It was a cool night, with good motives and honorable people attending. Many creative souls were present and many motivated souls invested in making this event happen. Many kudos must go to these pioneers of the Sacramento LGBTI community. For there are few people in Sacramento wholly this brave or this full of quality endeavor.

Candles were lit, colorful sidewalk chalk was passed around to mark the name of our fallen on the gray sidewalk. Many of us could not remember the names of so many so long passed. Many teared up or gave in to deep emotions of lost and fading memories. Ghosts of our honorable dead walked the sidewalks this night.

I think Sacramento needs more of these events. Sacramento needs to bond its fractured LGBTI community back into a political force to be reckoned with and not ridiculed. Sacramento needs to rebuild its diverse community of talent, personality and wit. It needs to recognize that it is a faltering sick city, favoring alcohol and drug addiction over true, quality community. We need leadership that is genuine and true. We need to put away our petty squabbles and unhealthy antics. Gays, Lesbians, Bi-sexuals, Transgendered, and all of our other brothers and sisters must now realize that we are part of the whole. That we will not be trampled on and that we deserve the fundamental rights granted to us by our constitution. Stop giving your hard earned cash to the Pimps of Gay addiction and start attending community rallies and healthy events that are rich in history, compassion and evoke our deep heritage as a minority community as well as our golden culture.
