thursdays_child: (Election 08: Stand for Change)
( Nov. 5th, 2008 08:57 am)
I stayed up far too late last night reading and re-reading election coverage and checking and re-checking Prop 8 status.

I'm groggy and out of it this morning and not very focused on work. I'm too overwhelmed.

I am still full of hope for the future in the wake of last night's victory for President-elect Barack Obama.

In the spirit of standing for change, I still have hope that California will do the right thing and beat down Prop 8. The gap is narrowing, but perhaps not by enough with 92% of precincts reporting. To say that I am disappointed is an understatement. I hold out hope though that this will be appealed or whatever other process is available.

If we can overcome generations of prejudice enough to elect a man on his merits regardless of race, as is only right, how can we not overcome our prejudices about the universal nature of love?

It is time and past time for this change to come too.

So we've done it and now the hard work starts. Let's keep on standing for change and working for change.

It's about damn time.
