Whoa! Never thought of it this way.....

Ok….. so if you know me, you know that I usually claim to be Switzerland in a public arena when it comes to highly charged issues. (Do you know who I voted for? Are you sure?) Also, you know that in private, I hold very strong opinions; and I can be fierce in defending my values if challenged.

That said, I have to be honest. The whole Prop 8 in California / Gay Marriage thing – I’ve truly been Switzerland because I hadn’t really thought about it seriously.

 I’m not gay, but I know beautiful amazing people who are. I don’t know anyone who has marched for gay rights, or has been deliberately prejudiced against because of sexual orientation.  

So, what am I saying?

There is a point…..

I read the blog of a friend from High School. She posted the video that I have chosen to post below.

It moved me.

It MOVED me.

What was said in the video – well, I hadn’t thought of it in that way before.

I’m not asking you to believe it, support it, or even watch it. It’s your conscious choice to watch the video… if YOU choose to.

I’m posting the video because it moved ME.

“This isn’t about yelling, this isn’t about politics, and this isn’t really just about Prop 8; and I don’t have a personal investment in this…….. this is about the human heart.”
