I’m still in shock.  The world is crying.  Ed McMahon.  Farrah Fawcett.  And Michael Jackson, the King of Pop.  I can’t say for certain, but I think the Afterlife just got funnier, sexier and musically enhanced x 1000.  Rest in peace.   

Ok, so I can’t figure out how to post this video from funny or die.  So, you just have to click the link and watch the musical about California’s Proposition 8 – starring Margaret Cho, John C. Reilly, Neil Patrick Harris, Maya Rudolph, Jack Black and more! 

 

I just have so many issues with this topic…  I keep hearing the phrase “deconsstruct marriage” and to me, that’s like saying “jumbo shrimp.”  The focus of marriage is to construct a new relationship…  We are discriminating in America still, and it’s sad.  Why is one person more valid than another?  There’s no answer, and by not allowing people to have civil rights we are making them feel invisible.

Standing in front of the jumbo tv in downtown West Palm Beach, it was as though the cool temperature suddenly rose a few degrees.  The blustery winds seemed to calm.  The collective pulse of the crowd steadied.  

Today was glorious.  There is a lot of journalistic junk food – dress reviews, celebrity spotings, dance moves – that you could get fat on, but let’s not.  Let’s hope that we remember the little things – for me, it was the smile on the young girl’s face as she sat on her father’s shoulders, and the little tap dance in my heart after President Obama said, “On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics.”  I hope that everyone – regardless of color, political affiliation, religious belief, preference for automatic or stick shift – let today remind them of how lucky we are to be Americans.

Watch and read President Obama’s entire speech here.

What an energy that this day has!  Of course, everybody is talking about the election…the radio, the TV, even my phone has been busy with “Have you voted today?!” and “Go Vote” messages and texts.

Tonight’s results (and…let’s hope it is ‘tonight’) will mean one person’s dreams may come true, yet another’s may be crushed.  In any event, history will be made.  It’s quite a thing to be a part of; this election will be talked about, analyzed, compared to, measured against, etc….  For some, who they vote for is a private matter.  For me, here I am, with a forum (this blog) to express myself, so on this final day of the 2008 Election…here it goes…

I am female.  I support a woman’s right to choose; is a democracy not giving freedom to its citizens?  I am proud to be American.  I believe in evolution.  I want humans to be treated equally regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation or religion.  I support separation of church and state.  I hope we, as a nation, regain focus on technology and science.  I am a Democrat.  And, I believe we don’t have to hold the same beliefs to respect, or even love, one another. 

We, as Americans, don’t need to separate ourselves for fear of being lost in the crowd, rather we need to unify to create a better crowd.
