Just imagine it. You discover that you’re Oprah’s half-sister. Talk about hitting the jackpot!
Yeah, yeah, I know. It’s not just about the money… BAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
I'd love to find out that Bill Gates is a younger brother. Or that Warren Buffet is my uncle. Hey -- I don’t need to find some ne’re-do-well relative. I am the ne’re-do-well relative.

Kayla Kearney, an incredibly courageous senior at a
Santa Rosa, California, high school took a assembly as an opportunity to “break the silence” and come out as a lesbian to the entire school. Her articulate and poignant speech belies her young years.
