How can we tell when something is a new beginning?

The death of Leelah Alcorn has certainly shaken things up in the transgender community much like Ferguson did to the black community earlier this year. Both of these cases are remarkably similar in terms of reactions and the uncanny ability to bring the plight of a minority people to the forefront. This, I believe, is a new beginning for bringing attention to and giving the rights and respect to these people. This issue cannot be thrown under the bus and I have a felling that this will be the start of something much bigger. All of us have that feeling inside of us. We all have that gut feeling when we know something is about to happen. As you go into this new year, make sure that you listen to that feeling. Something that is really small can turn into something that is much bigger. It can happen to something as large as a nation and as small as the individual.
