I am against Prop 8!

I am still stunned and dismayed that proposition eight, banning gay marriage, passed in California on election day. On the same historic day our nation voted in a president representing hope and progress, a predominately liberal state passed a proposition that essentially labeled certain people as second class citizens...an oddly counter intuitive occurrence.
Today, while I was taking in the holiday windows at Macy's and sipping a latte, State Street shut down and filled up with protesters marching against the ban. I swear I almost jumped in with them when I saw the sign, "Straights against Prop 8," but I had to stay near the Joffrey. Instead I chanted and cheered, "Yes We Can!" with the passersby for nearly 20 minutes.
Clearly adversity breeds unity.
