Tue night I was elated. – out in the streets, tears and celebration, history making, hope filled – elated. Wednesday AM I got up and got on line, suddenly elation was gone –I was a mixture of heartsick, pained and generally pissed off as I read about Prop. 8 in Cali, the Florida and Arizona amendments and the Arkansas ban on “unmarried couples” adopting
I found I couldn’t hold that too long…. and went back to upbeat and happy – but now reality is sinking in again and I am trying to hold both realities, and all the conflicting emotions together and I’m not sure how to think about it, let alone write about it.
Here’s what I know…. A celebration was needed. The election of Obama was and is a big deal. It is a victory worth celebrating and I needed a celebration. There is still work to be done. A lot of work to be done. I want to do it with a sense of love and hope. Break time is over…. Let’s get busy!
