Pulling The Plug On Pride

They say pride goes before a fall.

I used to think those words were stupid, as if you could fall because of pride. But I really should have paid attention to the fine print, as me attending a parade promoting homosexuality ultimately cost me everything.

Because I attended the parade, I lost my job, I was kicked out of my apartment, and my family and friends stopped speaking to me. I was now homeless living on the streets, all because I failed to heed the warning. Well, I should have stayed home instead of attending the parade.

Pride goes before a fall.

And I have certainly fallen.
