a post about love and equality

"Love is everything it's cracked up to really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for." ~ Eric Jong

It is hard for me to put into words how I feel about marriage equality, partly because I don't think it should be an issue we even have to discuss. How can we tell people that having love in their hearts is wrong? It hurts to think that people can be so cruel to those who live differently than them. I am lucky that I live in a city that is typically supportive of gay marriage and all of my friends and (most of) my family feel the same way. 

It won't be like this forever, it will get better, and we will learn to honor and appreciate love in all it's different forms. If you think everyone should have the right to be married, please do something to help. We can't be passive about this anymore. We need to protest, donate, and vote for everyone to have equal rights. To be free to love!
