Yes - our very lives.

I had read about San Diego mayor Jerry Sander's decision not to veto a resolution urging the California Supreme Court to overturn a ban on same-sex marriages ... but I finally watched the video.

Wow. Just wow. Seeing someone express their change of heart like this makes me feel like maybe we ARE getting somewhere.

Wow that was a really powerful clip! Good to see people getting behind us. I think people are going to have to learn that if they discriminate against gays, one day they may be discriminating against their children or grandchildren. We have gay marriage in Canada so good luck to you guys in the States!

This was obviously a very difficult thing for him to talk about; it must have been a gut-wrenching decision. I hope he can now look his daughter in the face and feel good about it.

Every day, more and more of the "other side" realizes that we are their neighbors, brothers, sisters, co-workers, their children, and in many cases, we are them.

When more and more leaders, like Jerry Sander, follow their hearts, others will follow as well.

Thanks for posting that... I'd only seen the "my daughter" soundbite... good for him. Good for all of us who live open, proud and honest lives.
