On the surface, the basic tenets of American life guarantee life, liberty and pursuit of happiness for all citizens. But the truth is that there many disenfranchised citizens who must fight for that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Sarah McBride was born a boy. But something inside of her didn’t feel right. She knew that she was supposed to be a girl. Her transformation into her true and authentic self is chronicle in her new memoir, Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equality. Coming out in college, Sarah began the long and difficult process to become a woman. This long and difficult path included meeting her first love/husband and using her voice to help other trans people who are embarking on the same journey she went on.
I loved this memoir. I loved it not only because it was honest, but also because it was open. It’s not easy to be your authentic self, especially when that self goes against what everyone else says you should be. I admire her strength, her courage, her honestly and her willingness to be a voice for the disenfranchised who are still fighting for the right just to be themselves.
I recommend it.
