Like in the 1960s we are again facing a civil rights crisis in this country. A crisis that bans two consenting adults to get married and have all of the benefits and rights that come with it. These are benefits that some people take for granted, like the right to adopt, or even be in the same room with an ailing loved one, or the right to leave a loved one something in a final will and testament. By denying people this right we are treating them as second class citizens. No one in this day should be treated any lower than anyone else. Just recently we elected America's first African American president proving just how far this country has come. So now let's step up and say "NO! I will not take someone being treated as a second class citizen in this country." Please let's stand together and say enough is enough! Separate but equal will no longer be tolerated. Let gay/lesbian couples get married and have the exact same rights as everyone else in this country. Let's make sure never again will someone be pushed to the back of the bus.
