I just have to make a quick post about California's Proposition 8 that we will be voting on this Tuesday!! I an an AVID supporter for gay rights and equality for all, no matter what!! This is America, a country that is known for it's freedom and free will, and to pass this proposition would undermine what America stands for. I am shocked to see groups of people, families, kids included, clustered on the street corners, picketing for voting YES on this!! My own son was asking what these people were out there doing while we drove by them a few days ago. I explained to him in an elementary way that some people don't believe in letting people marry who they want and who they love. They think that just because a man loves a man, that those two people shouldn't get married. Even my 4 year old is upset about this.. his only question was "Well when a man marries a man, who wears the wedding dress???" :) He went right home and started drawing 8's with big X's through them- he kept writing "NO 8"!!! I cannot tell you how proud I was of him... I even drove him by the groups of people again and we both yelled out the window "Go home!!" ... which I have to say, was SO darn exciting for both of us!! I want to teach him to stand up for what is right, and to stand up for all Americans, no matter their sexual preference.
If you live in California, I desperately hope that you are going out on Tuesday to vote, to make an informed and educated decision, not only on our new President, but on this VERY important proposition. I hope that California can get together and vote NO to hate, vote NO to discrimination, and
vote NO on Prop 8!!!!
I have faith that these Republicans can pull through next week!!!!! :) If you are a McCain supporter, make SURE to go out and vote- this is a crucial election! I hate to think of America with Obama as our next president.....
Ive got all the partners assigned and will be emailing you all by tonite!!!! Keep an eye out for my email, and if you don't receive one by tomorrow, email me!
