*six minutes of separation.

I know I won't be the first to post this. But find the time to watch it. These are the words behind my silent scream. The ones that fill my chest to bursting and seriously challenge my hate moratorium.

"This isn't about yelling and this isn't about politics and this isn't really just about Prop 8 ... This vote is horrible. HORRIBLE."

Luckily, the antidote to hate is love.

Mr. Oberman can be a bit much but on this subject he got it right. The religious folks who oppose equal rights for gay people sound exactly like those interviewed in todays NYT (from Alabama, of course)who voted against Obama because ther are good Christians and he has a funny middle name. Seriously. Or as seriosly as you can take such nonsense. Love you! Dad

I am married in my heart.

Like all pioneers, I will wait for the world to catch up.

History will be the greatest judge.

Waiting is not what I am here for, I live for the privilege of today.

I am married, the world just doesn't know it or care...or not enough.

The countless people throughout history who were never allowed to be with or live with the ones they loved. I also live for you.

Their wait for history to catch up with them was not soon enough. They lived and died without their deserved dignity.

When will they be honored?

I could not imagine a world without what I have now. The love that dare not speak it's name.

Oh history, come quickly for we are all here waiting.

I am a work in progress. I perpetually need a hair cut. I'm totally devoted to my remarkable nieces and nephew. I am an elementary home cook and a magazine worker bee. (Please criticize my syntax and spelling in the comments.) I think my dog is hilarious. I like chicken and spicy things. I have difficulty being a grown-up. Left to my own devices, I will eat enormous amounts of cheese snacks of all kinds.
