“We are beautiful because we are mistaken, and we are forgiven before we begin.” – part of a poem by Steven, which he kinda thought was “bullshit” but also made him feel like he was awesome. (Personally, I side with “awesome.”)
Steven Schnarr was born into a religious family living in a religious community, but at 19 he chose a different path. A few weeks ago his brother Jason killed himself, and again Steven’s world crumbled. After the funeral Steve made the following speech:
“I just want to say one thing: none of us have any fucking idea what’s going on, and it really angers me that many of you pretend that you do.”
People… can I get a resounding AMEN?
Since I know some of you won’t feel that 30 minutes is enough, you can listen to my entire unedited interview with Steven here.
Steven’s request for music was “anything by Jonathan Childs” – a request I happily granted.
