The story of Patricia Davies struck me deeply. Peter Davies, now Patricia Davies, was a World War II veteran who lived a life publicly as a male for 90 years and privately as a male for 60 years. At the age of 90, she finally, after 87 years of secrecy, decided to publicly admit her transgender status.
How long will it take you to admit who you really are?
Do we live in a society that influences us to nearly die with our truths? Do our religions facilitate this closed mindset? Or is it our inherent selfishness that doesn't allow us to simply be happy for someone who has an unusual truth? What made people so uncomfortable with the idea of transgender for so long?
What is happiness worth to you? What are the truths that define your core identity?
