For today’s post on love, I have “borrowed” the following video from The Courage Campaign. I can’t watch this video without thinking of my dear friend M. in California. He recently married his partner of 15 years in September, 2008, and barely 2 months later had to go through the pain of learning that a majority of people in his state wanted to “divorce” them, to invalidate his marriage. How do you “invalidate” love? Why would any person want to invalidate another’s deep happiness and fulfillment and, yes, true love, so hard won in these times, or in any time?
I see that it’s happening, I hear the hate and fear that always spews out of these people, but for the life of me, I cannot understand it. Perhaps I’ll pray for them. I know that I pray for my friend M and his husband, that their love and marriage will remain valid and recognized under the laws of California.
Please watch this borrowed video, and if it brings you any closer to an understanding of true love, then it will have done its job.
