I write with mixed emotions.
I personally am ecstatic with America and the world’s choice for Obama.
Yes, we have woken up from this deep sleep.
Yet, in many states in this country, we have been awake and still asleep, voting to ban “gay” marriage. What is “gay” marriage?
Marriage is a willing union of hearts. It must not be defined by gender or sexual orientation.
I am sorry, I cannot write more as I am deeply saddened by this, this seemingly ignorant action on the behalf of human beings in 2008.
“Hope” is a universal word. It is not intended and not defined for the few. How dare we, how dare we, crush good people’s dreams? Is it easier to do so when it is not black and white? Is it easier to do so when it is approved unions vs. those that are not?
By whose laws do we take such actions to deprive our brothers and sisters of what we so willingly take as ours?
Raise Up! Vote to ban hetersexual marriage, let’s see what kind of reaction that gets.
Again, I’m sorry, but this is a sad, sad state of affairs that we would, as enlightened human beings, vote down love.
