with arms outstretched.

Some days they last longer than others. But this day by the lake went too fast.


Just ask.   
This is Mikey, a 31 year old openly gay man full of love, kindness and happiness. He was brutally attacked and nearly died. He had forgotten his keys at his cousins house and was walking back, in broad daylight this past Sunday afternoon, when he was attacked by a man yelling homophobic slurs. This is a hate crime, and it is never under any circumstances ok. 

Mikey suffered from multiple fractures bones, a fractured skull and bleeding on his brain. He still cannot open his eyes from the swelling. The attacker has a history of violence and will have no trouble hiring an excellent lawyer. While Mikey is in stable condition, the post traumatic stress from this event will never be gone. 

 Mikey’s family is so kind and giving and now they need our help. I know tumblr will not stand for this kind of hate crime. Please, reblog, donate, and send prayers/positive thoughts to Mikey and his family. Please share for anyone who has ever been a victim of a hate crime, stand up and say that this is not ok, and let the world know you will not tolerate hate, period.
