When she died my grandfather, who never spoke much, said there was nothing left for him but to wait.
Rob Ford has been dying for months. Anyone who lives in this world knew the prognosis was not good. The days and nights must have been agony. The end a blessing for himself and his family who
could not have wished for his last ordeal to continue.
Now they are grieving and hopefully not paying attention to Toronto media.
This morning Facebook has a reminder of the lone vote he cast against a segregated shelter for gay youth, he refused to walk in a Gay Pride Parade and they said, privately slurred gays and lesbians.
He denied he was homophobic.
What is that about ?
The man's life just ended .
His mother will bury her son.
His children will grow up without a Dad.
His siblings lost a brother.
Why, at the time of a man's death, is this a suitable occasion to bring up the subject of gay and lesbian lifestyle?
What is it with some members of the LBG community, they think everybody should be as pre-occupied with their sexual preferences as they are?
Life is not easy. Most do well to cope with whatever demons they have to cope with.
To each his own, I say.
Unless it's a child of mine, however far removed, I am not opposed to anyone else's sexual predilection. I am not interested either. Walking or watching an exhibition promoting the lifestyle
would not be my choice.
While on the super sensitive, I agree a woman should make decisions about her own body.
I also believe there should be a time limit for abortion.
It should be early.
Never ever in the third trimester of a pregnancy.
That's my tribute to Rob Ford , a man who stayed true to himself.
