This is a very short, very sad story in a photograph of a man who was probably a genius for his day. It’s the story of Alan Turing, someone who had so much to give to the world, but because of the prejudices of mankind, a valuable life was cut short. How many others have there been and are there that have so much to give, yet just because they don’t fit into the “norm” of life as others see it, are silenced? Everyone has a purpose – their private lives should be just that – private. Anyone living has the chance to change your life in a positive manner, if you’ll just allow them to love you as a human being, and you in turn can practice unconditional love.
