Flabbergasted 

There will be no Moment of Zen tomorrow.  I am not sure I will be posting for several days.  As I was leaving school today, I was called in to the principal’s office and told that I no longer had a job.  I have no idea what I will do, except look for a new job.  There was no warning, no reprimands on my record, no hint of me not returning for next year.  I was simply told there had been complaints made, though no one can tell me what they were.  It is a mystery to me, and a mystery to all those who I’ve spoken with about the issue.
I can’t stop crying, and I’m just in shock.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe

    I am so sorry

    Appalling! I am terribly sorry for you.
    Perhaps something good will come of this, such as relocating to a more hospitable part of this country?
    If the rancorous and rancid political situation that we now have at the national level persists after 2016, I would like to emigrate to Canada where my late spouse and I were married in 2004. I think the USA is doomed owing to uncontrolled religiosity that has polluted our social discourse.
