I believe in marriage equality, and when President Obama voiced his support earlier this year, the pride I felt to be an American was unmatched. It was the most powerful voice in the world telling my best friend she should be able to marry the woman she loves – not because they should have special rights or different rights, but because they are no different and they should have the same rights as all other Americans.
When President Obama voiced his support for marriage equality he was saying I should have the right to be the maid of honor when my best friend marries – whether that be to a man or a woman.
This is a President who shares my values and whose standards mirror my own. This is a President who plans to move our country forward. And this is a President I will happily be casting my vote for come this November.
