… This was going to be simply an addendum to my previous post about Proposition 8. However I started writing and before I knew it I have another whole post.
Most of the people who read this blog tend to be people I know, but I was just reminded that this is for the world to see. Yesterday my post about opposing Proposition 8 garnered 2 comments almost immediatley after publishing. Those 2 comments are not from people I know, nor are they opinions I agree with, but I welcome them just the same. And it made me realize that in the day when you are force fed opinions from ‘trusted’ news sources and negative television ads, it’s the individuals opinion that can have more power.
In short, if you want to support Prop. 8, blog about it.
Make your opininon and voice known. You don’t have to donate and vote with your dollars. Donate with your voice. Get the dialog going. Comment on others blogs. Our government process will pass you by if you don’t make your voice known. Be your own special interest.
If you don’t have a blog you can do this on many free services like WordPress, Blogger, MySpace, Facebook or many other sites.
If you have a blog, remove the any tendency to not talk about politics in a fear of offending them. Be yourself. If your opinions offend your friends, they might not really be your friends in the first place. Agree to disagree and agree to keep talking.
I firmly believe that we create our own reality. By expressing yourself you are helping to shape not only your reality but the reality of the people around you and ultimately the people who are making the decisions about what you can and cannot do where you live.
