I am so nervous

I am so nervous about Proposition 8.  This is a proposed amendment to the California Constitution that defeats equality and basic human rights.  Again, banning same-sex marriage has nothing to do with religious freedom or health education in schools.  It has to do with human dignity, a linguistic differentiation between “civil union” and “marriage,” and an intolerance that would be ominous to our future as a tolerant, humane people.  As of 11:50 PM, 44% of votes have been reported, and Yes on 8 is leading 53% to 47%.  AHH!

Now, the good news.

THIS IS POST 100!  Also, GOBAMA!  It’s a good night in Berkeley.  (Details and pictorials to come.)

Happy Blogiversary, Varsha 😀

    What a celebration for your blogiversary! At least on Obama. I still CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!! I’m just zinged this morning – buzzing with energy despite total exhaustion.

    The joy will be that much tarnished, though, if 8 passes.

    Happy 100 and yeah, the Prop 8 thing is a real slap in the face after the happiness from Obama.

    Thanks! I’ll be back soon, and responding for real, and posting pictures.
    Oh, and most importantly, fighting for equality for ALL human beings.
