There are a couple things on the 2012 ballot that carried a lot of weight for me: the presidential election and Washington State's Referendum 74 legalizing same sex marriage were personally significant.
I deeply appreciate the voters in these four states standing up for what is right. It is nice to know that, were I living in the states that affirmed marriage equality, I would have the same rights as everybody else.
The folks working to get the Washington electorate to approve Referendum 74, which affirms the right of LGBT couples to marry, have found a unique and groundbreaking way to harness Facebook to power their Get Out the Vote operation.
The radiant promise of freedom and human rights that drew me to the United States in 1980 will become brighter when the voters of Washington affirm that freedom includes the freedom to marry. It will be a celebration of the moral and spiritual arc that always bends toward inclusion!
