I began designing my first home page during
Spring Break of 1998.
Its primary purpose was to inform people of les/bi/gay issues.
I became frustrated due to the lack of hits I was receiving and began to
expand my page.
However, my primary purpose began to be over-shadowed by my
other interests, which included RPGs and music.
So, I moved the RPG info to a different URL.
The other day, I again noticed the same over-shadowing I did before.
So, I decided to make this page:
My Rainbow Haven.

In loving memory of Matthew Shepard...

And everyone else who has fought
for and/or died for our rights...

"Scarecrow" by Melissa Etheridge
Showers of your crimson blood
Seep into a nation calling up a flood
Of narrow minds who legislate
Thinly veiled intolerance
Bigotry and hate.

But the torture you and burned you
They beat you and the tied you
They left you cold and breathing
For love the crucified you.

I can't forget hard as I try
This silhouette against the sky.

Scarecrow crying
Waiting to die; wondering why
Scarecrow trying
Angels will hold; carry your soul away.

This was our brother
This was our son
This shepherd young and mild
This unassuming one
We all gasp; this can't happen here.

We're all much too civilized
Where can these monsters hide.

But they are knocking on our front door
They're rocking in our cradles
They're preaching in our churches
And eating at our tables.

I search my soul
My heart and in my mind
To try and find forgiveness
This is someone's child
With pain unreconciled
Filled up with father's hate
Mother's neglect
I can forgive
But I will not forget.

Scarecrow crying
Waiting to die; wondering why
Scarecrow trying
Rising above in the name of love.
