Jason Collins, the 34-year old NBA player, has become the first male in a major American team sport to reveal that he is gay.
God, it's tough for every single one of us to be authentically who we truly are. All of us hide parts of our lives. Today, God, we honor that a public figure has not allowed society's expectations to hold him back. Here is a person who risked his image to reveal his true self. Help us to embrace that same courage and throw away our own masks. Remind us that we are all made in your image, and you love us just as we are.
