My Opinion

I was looking through some old e-mails in order to reference something I'd said previously in a new e-mail when I re-read the one that gave me pause. I was asked my opinion on the marriage equality issue, and though I'd never given it extensive thougth, I was quite pleased with my response so I thougth I'd share...

I do agree that there is no reason that there shouldn't be marriage equality. Unfortunately, the road will be long and the battle harrowing. We will have to winnow away at decades/centuries of prejudice. Sometimes it seems that we, as a collective people, do more to harm each other. Wasting precious energy hating that which we don't understand - energy that could be better served in tackling issues that affect us all; men, women; black, white, yellow, red; gay, lesbian, bi and transgendered, etc. Stopping the destruction of the planet is an issue that affects everyone and everything. And our dying world doesn't care what you look like or who you love.

Ok, jumping down from soap box now...
