Indeed, a courageous campaign

picture-2 Anyone who knows me realizes that I am probably one of the least political people you'll ever meet. I just haven't taken the time to really figure out my stance on a lot of issues and I find myself still conflicted between the ideals with which I was brought up and the beliefs I've developed in my transition to adulthood. However, if there is one thing I feel passionately about, it's gay marriage. I'm from California and I was in complete shock when Prop 8 passed last fall in my home state--supposedly one of the most liberal ones in the country. It's mind-boggling to think that two people who love each other still cannot be married solely because of their gender. It makes me angry and incredibly sad. Today, a friend of mine sent out a Twitter update with this amazing link : It's a petition against Ken Starr's legal brief "seeking to nullify the marriages of 18,000 same-sex couples solemnized before Prop 8 passed" as well as a video of a few of said couples pleading, "Please don't divorce us." The 3-minute video, set to Regina Spektor's "Fidelity," is incredibly touching. Please take a few minutes to watch it, and if you agree with its cause, sign the petition and forward the link to everyone you know. It will probably be the most courageous thing you do today.
