Peoria, AZ, March 21, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- They're all around you. Creatures who are different from you--not the ordinary kind you take for granted. You're even getting to know some of them as they enter your social circles and family, one at a time. You want peace to exist on Earth, and all around you, but you don't know what to say to people who are so extra ordinary. Where do you turn?
Marilyn Haight, a writer in Peoria, Arizona, didn't know what to say when a friend surprised her by announcing that the friend was gay. Haight didn't want the friendship to change--she wanted to be supportive, but felt tongue-tied because she'd never been in this situation. She scanned the shelves of card stores and found no greetings that addressed this occasion. She asked others who said that they buy blank cards, but never know what to write in them for different occasions. They wished they had a book of ideas--the greetings they find in existing books deal only with the usual holidays and occasions, not the extraordinary.
Haight got to work and filled the void. Her new reference guide, the first of its kind, offers hundreds of sentiments you may borrow or adapt to suit your needs. When you want to acknowledge people and events in a positive way, these sentiments can help you reach across differences in age; race; personality style; politics; religion; sexual orientation; social context; and more.
"Greeting Card Verses for Nontraditional Situations & Relationships" is available from local and online book sellers (ISBN 978-0-9800390-5-4; Worded Write Publishing; 2011; $12).
