The Train Rolls On

A train rolls down the tracks.  The destination is unknown.  Stops are few and far between, and there is no guarantee of a return date.  It is, as it should be.  Passengers are either all aboard, or not on at all.  There is no one foot in, one foot back, for life isn’t supposed to work like that.

The Need For Equality

The video below is the incredible speech, Zach Wahls, gave to the Iowa House of Representatives in opposition to a resoltion that would end civil unions.  It was a courgeous speech, uplifting, and one has to be sure he made both his mothers proud.

It defies logic that in the year 2011 that there is still the gay marriage debate.  If two people love each other and want to spend their lives together, there should be no issue for them to get married and get the rights and privileges that accompany being married.  It shouldn't matter if it's between a man and a man, woman and a woman, or man and woman.
