Being Different

Being different - having a Methodist Mum when you go to a Catholic school; having a Catholic Dad when you join the Christian Union at college; marrying a Church of England spouse in a Catholic church; being the only Catholic elder in a Presbyterian church...

 ...loving to read and write but being hopeless at spelling; loving to play with mathematics but always adding numbers wrong; loving history but can't remember dates; loving art but hating messy fingers...

...having a name that easily mispronounced; talking with a foreign accent; wondering if you ought to carry your passport when you visit Arizona 'cause, okay, you don't look Hispanic but you are different, and for all that the law's not "meant" to apply to you it could if you offended the wrong person...

...being an immigrant citizen and knowing no matter how hard you try you'll never just be normal, and what's normal anyway...

...standing up for those who are different because, whoever you are, you're different too.
