I’ve heard stories of friends who were put in an insane asylum, because they heard voices. I’ve heard they were put away because they saw spirits in their homes. Less than thirty years later a great many people are safe to mention and admit they are having paranormal experiences without most people thinking they are utterly insane. We can even provide proof for those people. Pictures and voices that we can’t see with the human eyes and hear with the human eye. Whether paranormal or not we have proved they are having these experiences.
Recently over the past few years TV shows have been popping up on every channel from Medium, Ghost Whisperer, Paranormal State, Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, I Survived…Beyond and Back, A Haunting and Most Haunted. These are only to name a few of these shows.
I’ve seen post recently about paranormal sellouts. People who don’t just do ghost hunting to help people, clients, or get proof. That they shouldn’t be doing this on TV. My comment, experience, opinion is that they’ve done greater help for our society and our world, then someone who would turn it down, just because they feel they are sell outs. If you were in the shoes of someone who was put away at age 8 or age 30 or age 55, for seeing apparitions you would know what I mean. The stories are heartbreaking. These kids and adults weren’t trying to kill someone, they didn’t jump off buildings thinking they can fly - they were just expressing an experience that we now find are common place. These television personalities; psychics and investigators have helped open the door to awareness. To create a less judgmental society and less skeptics that are eager to lock people away and throw away the key.
Some of the people that shared stories with me were people who were put away by parents and spouses. Telling the story is still painful to them.
I am thankful for these show as they have opened our eyes and allowed us a sense of freedom. I was reminded of that today when I found out that the military will allow gay people to fight and die for us openly. Will and Grace, Broke Back Mountain, Noah’s Arc, The L Word and so many other shows that have showed us that gay people are people, HUMAN’S and not to be hidden or shamed for who they are. They laugh, love and bleed like everyone else. They get hurt feelings, believe in god and would die for another human being just like many other folks in this world. They are skeptics, believers, lovers and can be killers just like a straight person. There are no differences good or bad and I believe the media as screwed up as it can be at time, made a huge positive difference. It great to be able to focus on the positive here.
It doesn’t matter if we are talking about the paranormal, people who see ghost; see the future or if you are gay trying to have a semi-normal life. We all have a right to freedom and to be heard.
