My Note To The LGBT community....

To say that a love between two people is not worthy of marriage is wrong on so many levels. You think we would all be celebrating the fact that anyone is capable of finding love in a world full of such terrible pain, sadness, illness and poverty.

I hope to live to see the day when we can acknowledge that we are all connected by a very important thing: we're all human beings with a heart, a brain, a soul. Our hearts beat the same. Our brains function the same. Our souls crave the same: a life where we can be happy and proud of who we are, without judgment, without fear.

In this country, our past includes a time when women were not able to vote...and we surpassed it.

In this country, our past includes a time when people of color could not get an education...and we surpassed it.

In this country, our past will include what's happening RIGHT NOW...and I hope we can surpass it.
