A good many dramatic situations begin with screaming

5 Apr

good god iowa!  this mama is proud of you!  thank you middle america.  and really thank you to those who fought for this.  you know how much i love people who fight for social justice.  you walk the walk and talk the talk and now you are married.  according to the New York Times article:

“The legal case here began in 2005, when the six same-sex couples filed suit against the county recorder here in Polk County because he would not accept their marriage license applications.”

this is a huge victory and from someone who was in L.A. on november 5th and experienced the solemn, the utter shock and sadness of H8 and then being in Salt Lake City 4 days later experiencing this surreal combination of both disgust and responsibility, well…let’s just say this, iowa, this feels damn good.

no one will hear you if you aren’t saying anything and sometimes you just have to scream to be heard.
