“I love all people.”– Reverend Prentice T. Minner
The first time I heard this quote was when I was about 9 years old. Reverend Prentice T. Minner has always been a big part of my life. He helped me hone in on my music abilities with singing and writing songs. He also not only taught my dad, but also taught me how to love everyone. If you are gay, straight, male, female, Asian, white, black, middle eastern, Hispanic, Christian, Catholic, Buddhist, Muslim, Pagan, Athiest…I love you. I love everyone on the face of this earth. In my own heart, I know I cannot judge anyone. I believe in love and a utopian society.
I’m not a religious person for many reasons, but I am a spiritual person and believe in God in my own way. And I know for a fact that God loves all of us. And I also believe love has no boundaries. I have friends from all walks of life, from drugs to gangs to losing faith. I help them with finding their way back in life and show them that there are people who do care.
I learned from Reverend Prentice T. Minner, dad and also my grandpa Don and grandpa Larry to show unconditional love. These men instilled a great amount of love in my heart and because of them, I am the person that I am today.
