Our Family Rejects Prop 8

Today wasn’t much fun (previously on Twitter).

After our family’s philosophical conversations and practical efforts to defeat Proposition 8 last November, it was disappointing to see the California Supreme Court affirm this blatant form of discrimination.

But Enough! Now we’re called to action … beginning with a “Day of Decision” rally that started at Plaza de Cesar Chavez and ended with a march and rally at San Jose City Hall.

So the girls participated in their first protest rally. Actually, to be honest, it was probably the first protest rally for any of us — yeah, shame on us.

The girls were more spectators than participants, but it still remains nearly impossible to explain to them why anyone would vote to prevent a loving couple from getting married, regardless of their genders. They don’t understand, and neither do we.
