Hope for Change!!!

As soon as I got home from work Tuesday, I turned the TV on to the news and sat there intently watching the rest of the night. I felt so much pride and hope watching Obama give his speech after winning the election. I know I woke my mother-in-law up, I was cheering so loudly. Next thing I know, I was crying, but they were happy tears.

It was depressing yesterday to find out that Proposition 8 passed in California though. It hard for me to understand how it passed when people have such ridiculous arguments why gay marriage should be banned. Like saying it corrupts our children and will be taught in school. Come on people, wake up! I just hope that this can be turned around too.

"The good news for supporters of marriage equity is that -- and there's no polite way to put this -- the older voters aren't going to be around for all that much longer, and they'll gradually be cycled out and replaced by younger voters who grew up in a more tolerant era."
