Prayers For Bobby

Has anyone seen this?  This is a movie called Prayers for Bobby, a Lifetime movie based on the true story of a mother (played by Sigourney Weaver) who couldn’t accept her gay son.  Here is the IMDB Synopsis:

“True story of Mary Griffith, gay rights crusader, whose teenage son committed suicide due to her religious intolerance. Based on the book of the same title by Leroy Aarons.”

I watched this movie on YouTube through my Blu-Ray player and boy did I cry my eyes out.  This story is so emotional that I had to pause it a couple of times because I was missing the movie because I was crying so hard.

This is a movie that every religious anti-gay parent and family should watch before they decide to give up on or throw their child away for being gay.

Actor Ron Silver Dies in NYC At Age 62 of Cancer

Obit Silver

This is indeed sad.  Ron Silver has passed away at the age of 62 from Cancer.

The shows and movies that I remember him from were “Veronica’s Closet”, “Chicago Hope”, “Mr. Saturday Night”, “Oh, God! You Devil”, “Romancing the Stone”, “Silkwood”, “Hill Street Blues” and “The Entity”.  Yes, I went through he list in IMDB which is a very long list of credits.

Ron Silver lead a very nice life and tragic that it had to end after 62 years.  To the friends and family of this very talented man, I am sorry for your loss.  The loss isn’t just yours but is also ours.  He surely will be missed.  My family and I will keep Ron and his family and friends in our prayers during this most difficult time.
