Your life mattered. And now, your passing can can teach more tolerance...
And to the people that are angry need to look within themselves.
And to the Christians, can you really envision Jesus turning away a soul for being"different" AND why does this make people sooooo MAD?!
I'm sure God is embracing Jai with Loving Joy..She is free now😢
