Marriage Equality

No, this isn't a political banter about what I think and what should happen... frankly because it's obvious and we all know it. But I did want to share recent videos that have virally taken the social world by storm.

First you have the Australian ad entitled, "It's Time" created to help move the country towards marriage equality, and I must say, it's genius. Beautifully shot and the story is simple. ANYONE can relate. It's how these stories should be told.


And then you have an incredible testimony from a young man raised by a lesbian couple in Iowa. His insight is poignant and his speech articulate. ANY parent would be proud to have this gentleman as their son. "Zach Wahls, a 19-year-old University of Iowa student spoke about the strength of his family during a public forum on House Joint Resolution 6 in the Iowa House of Representatives. Wahls has two mothers, and came to oppose House Joint Resolution 6 which would end civil unions in Iowa."
