While we still have a ways to go in the US, we are getting closer to the widespread legalization of gay marriage in the US. Everyone has the right to love another person, and everyone should have the right to legally marry that person, discrimination free. Gay rights are Civil rights, and we have to keep pushing forward and supporting the rights of all with love and acceptance. With Washington added this past weekend to the number of legal same-sex marriage states, Fuzzy and I have been blubbery and weepy looking at photos of happy couples finally able to marry the ones they love. I encourage you to do the same.

I hope Illinois is coming soon, and you better believe I will be down at City Hall, camera and box of tissues in hand.
