To My Cousin Michael:
Growing up together, only 4 months apart in age, I thought I knew most things about you.
Last year, when we were both freshmen in college, you expressed your sexuality to me in the form of a light dinner conversation. You never had to say it - we just sat and whined about our exes while we ate. No questions necessary. I don't know if that conversation meant much to you, but I felt closer to you than I ever had.
As I grow older and learn more about our society, I only become more and more proud of you for being the person that you were born to be. You are so smart, handsome, hilarious, and caring and I thank God for blessing me with such an amazing friend/family member.
You don't know how much I look up to you.
I love you so much!
