fear vs love

another reason why we need to chose love, not fear:



i live in a country where i have the right to marry who ever it is that my love~journey takes me to. I don't take that right lightly.

I wish I were in california right now so I could join in the marches and protests protesting the right for all people to marry in that state being revoked. I fully believe that things won't stay the way they are....i believe that the way I believed (and no pessimism could sway me) that Obama would become the next president. Because it has to happen, because its time for change. Because Hope can trump Pessimism if we try hard enough, because Love can swallow Hate whole if we try hard enough. This setback has motivated people who believe in LOVE to take action. Like this video (if you have 6 minutes to spare i highly recommend watching the whole thing...its so well said). Love trumps all else, it counteracts the reasons why people voted for prop8. When it all comes down to it, don't we all just want to be loved in this lifetime?

I watched the other day and was blown away at his words. Incredibley well said. We are very lucky to have values we do in this country.

The irony is that all of these people think it is religiously based that anyone but a man and woman should marry when the fundamental idea of the religion is to LOVE ONE ANOTHER - URGH. There is nothing that gets my goat more than HATE.

I'd be with you marching if I could too!!
