Our Choice

In a world where we are said to be free to choose,
Our friends laugh at us when we refuse to see certain movies or wear rainbow colored shirts.
Why, when freedom is given, is it only for those who agree with the giver?
Why do those who believe differently from us demand freedom to love who they want to love, and when we respect them, do not allow us the same?
Why must our voices be silenced?
Let us make our choice.
Our choice is Jesus.

-- Elizabeth C., 17
