First and foremost, you MUST watch this video. Please K&R it. I'd give it 1000 Rs if I could!

My so watched it with me. We were both very touched. He asked me if gay people really couldn't get married. I said that they couldn't (yet) up here in Maine. He was shocked and loudly said "WHAT?".

He then started to say that this was just the same as the way blacks were treated before civil rights and women before the right to vote. He said that it was just plain WRONG and that gays should have every right that straight people have. He asked what my wife and I would do if HE were gay and wanted to get married. I explained to him that up here in Maine we'll be voting for marriage equality this November.

Now our entire family will be working to re-elect President Obama this November, but my son said that he also wanted to work for marriage equality.

What a great kid!

PEACE!
