Bewildered

There are still a million thoughts and emotions running through me and I can't, after yesterday's post below, think of anything better to verbalize how I am feeling.

While I am not naive enough to think that this petition can make one damn bit of difference, please sign it to show unity and support that not all of us are all raving lunatics hiding behind an LDS or Knights of Columbus bigoted-front. I don't know what else to do yet, but I'm all for intelligent, loving, solidarity at this point.

And to end (for now), I leave you with a thought from the president of the Human Rights Campaign (Joe Solmonese) that has lingered with me since I read it yesterday:

"Yesterday, an unfortunate majority of voters stood with the most extreme and negative elements of society to deny the rights of loving and committed gay and lesbian couples. But it’s not the first time that has happened to us, and it won’t be the last. It doesn’t change the fact that we are married. It doesn’t change the fact that we have families. Make no mistake. We are bowed, but not discouraged. We are sad, but not disheartened. We grieve, but not as those who are without hope. "

I can't believe that in a matter of hours it went from being in the 60k to 120k+ signatures. Let's hope it makes a difference.
