Why I am a Gleek

Most of my friends are also Glee fans.  Many of the ones that aren't, don't understand the appeal of the show.

Why do people love this show?  The music?  Sure.

I think a lot of us see ourselves in the characters.  We've been the outsiders.  We've been the outcasts.  We've had our hearts broken, or come from a broken home, or have been tossed into a dumpster.   Hell, I used to sing choir songs around a friend's piano.

We were those kids.  We are those kids.  We're the ones that are different, and and don't fit in.  But somehow, the different kids can find a place to fit, together.

I'm thankful for my misfit friends, both from high school and college, and now.
