It’s OK to Have a Mixed Herd …

“Collective fear stimulates herd instinct, and tends to produce ferocity toward those who are not regarded as members of the herd.” Bertrand Russell

During a time in which we have elected a black president, — a monumentous event in our history — it is hard to believe that we can still move forward with such ignorance. It is a staggering reality, however, that we continue to deal with prejudice in several forms throughout this great country, and Propsition 8 is a perfect example of such unawareness. theweddingparty

I am not hear to ask you to change your core beliefs, but, instead, to ask you to move forward with an educated basis on which to base your arguments. An open heart would be nice, too.

Please check out one cause of which I am particularly fond, The Wedding Party, created by Executive Director Anthony M. Brown. This nonprofit organization supports and celebrates same-sex marriages.

    What a great site! Thanks for sharing…I have not seen it yet! I like how you stated that we need to “move forward with an educated basis.” So true. If people could just do that there would be an improvement in our world.
