The Marriage of Love: A Song For Everyone

I’m not the kind of person

Who keeps her thoughts at bay

Who sweeps things under the rug

If I think it – I’m gonna say

 .

So when I see a video

That makes my heart sing and skip a beat

I can’t, for the life of me fathom

How some people think gay marriage equals defeat

.

No disrespect to anyone’s religion

Please, believe what you wish – and more

But if your faith brings you to discriminate or even hate

You may want to re-think that door

.

With so much anguish, pain and suffering

Our world is in need of repair 

We need to get back to basics: Love, Respect, Care

.

For the naysayers of the world

I hope you watch this video and can truly feel

Beyond what you may have been taught as a child 

Because LOVE between same-sex partners is real

.

Thank you, Christian and Brad

And everyone who helped make their special day shine

It’s this type of positive media coverage 

That truly turns water into wine

PS: Kjo (Kristen Johnston, wedding officiant) you were stunning, and as usual made me laugh and cry. Bitch.

Good News Tuesday: Nottingham Day of Kindness

It’s always refreshing to read GOOD NEWS. And it’s out there, even if we do have to dig a little deeper than turning on the television or logging on-line.  I’d like to help make it a little easier.

Every now and again, I’ll highlight an article I find that focuses on GOOD NEWS. This column is called Good News Tuesday.

Please spread the word.

Today’s entry comes to us from one of my favorite organizations, Charter for Compassion. If you haven’t heard of it, The Charter is a global movement to create communities of compassion (and worth checking out, trust me).

Through Charter for Compassion’s site, I found this little gem:
