It is always welcomed to get to hear, understand and appreciate the experience, challenges and, if you will, destiny toward which individuals move. Joy has moved in that direction intentionally and bravely. The fact that she can articulate her experience in such a true and beautiful way is a gift to humanity as I see it. So often we have only muddled ideas, bias and intolerance that arise with such issues and experience, which can be the cause of much pain, tragedy and even violence. Thanks, Krista and Joy, for illumination, which always engenders acceptance, compassion and, therefore, peace. We have a long way to go as a "species" as Joy noted, but each step opens to that possibility.
