Something I feel strongly about

Sorry--it's been a crazy busy week and I will post all sorts of whimsical and amazing posts soon...or at least pictures of Penny because she turned 1 last weekend.

I just received this video from the Courage Campaign regarding Prop 8, and I can't stay quiet when bigotry threatens lives of others. If you don't feel the gay community has the right to marry, you don't want to watch this video. I warn you, supporters, that I needed a tissue about halfway through. Especially after listening to two of my GSA students talk about how their parents do not support their lifestyle, this sort of hatred and lack of understanding galls me. I hope Prop 8 stands, and I hope campaigns such as this one actually make something happen.

"Fidelity": Don't Divorce... from Courage Campaign on Vimeo.

So let's hear it for love, people! Go hug someone you care about!

I saw this a few weeks ago and actually had to stop it partway through because it was too heart-wrenching. Glad you thought to post it here to share it.
