I grew up in movie theaters.
It’s where I learned about the human condition.
Where I discovered my love for story-telling,
It’s where I had my first sexual experience
and my first paying job.
The theater is where I went for refuge
from the abusers,
from the loneliness
and for warmth
on long cold rainy nights.
It is my institute of learning,
my place of worship,
DO NOT BRING GUNS INTO MY CHURCH.
Do not bring guns into my church.
