This is not my typical posting regarding Amanda and her cochlear implant journey, but it is something that does affect her and the rest of our family. Amanda has two stepbrothers: my sons. One of them is straight. The other one is gay. We love them both and believe they deserve equal rights in all areas, including the right to marry whomever they fall in love with.
We participated in the nationwide protest November 15th against the passage of Proposition 8 here in California November 4th. Above are some photos of us at the Redlands City Hall.
It was a heartwarming day and we met many diverse people from all walks of life, gay and straight, who were standing on the corner for one sole purpose; to support equal rights for all and to repeal Prop 8.
I found this video on jointheimpact.wetpaint.com and decided to post it here because I think it really speaks to love and acceptance of all families and justice for all, not just for some.
On a connecting note to the theme of this blog.....Amanda did hear the supportive honks of cars that passed by!
