The Rising Cost – Part 1

September 30th, 2010
Justin Aaberg was only 15 years old. He had come out to his mother when he was 13, and while on the outside he seemed to have a great life going, on the inside he was a tormented storm. LGBT students at the Anoka-Hennepin School that Justin attended were, like is so frequently the case, easy targets as other students, and even teachers turned a blind eye. It finally got to a point where he just couldn?t handle it any more and feeling he had no where to turn to for help, he hanged himself in his room. Justin was the sixth student from the school to take his own life in the last 2 years and most are believed to have been the result of homophobic bulling.

More on Justin at WCCO including a video.

Fire Drake

On this night I take a name to honor the new path that I travel.
An ancient blood flows through my veins.
A blood that burns like the heart of the world.
A fire that fills my soul with the battle cries of a thousand Viking warriors on the charge.
I see harmony among the chaos.
I understand the need for balance in the universe.
With out Evil there can not be Good
With out Good there can not be evil.
To maintain the balance I call upon the sword and the hammer of war,
for these are the instruments of both life and death,.
I am kin to the Dragon and brother of men.
The creatures of the wood call me friend and the spirits of my brothers call me Fire Drake.
I am the fire that burns in the soul of the Earth
I am a hunter on the prowl
I am a lover of life and nature and staunch protector of both
Born under the sign of the lion
Both my love and my fury can be great
