This might sound crazy but I had this very vivid dream the other night.
Maybe it was because I am a home school mom studying the Declaration of Independence with my kids...but (I kid you not!) I dreamt that one of our nation's Founding Father's saw what was going on in America today and he had something profound to say about it! What he said really touched my heart. Weird, huh?
I woke up knowing that I had to find a way to get involved in Amendment 2, even though I didn't have a CLUE what amendment 2 was even about and had only seen all those "hurting Florida's Families" signs in my neighborhood...
Well, I know what it's all about now!
And I'm glad I had that dream.
Amendment 2 makes marriage between a man and woman part of our constitution so that it can never be overturned by a liberal judge.
That is all it does.
The other side is telling people that a "YES" vote on this amendment will take away "health care insurance, hospital visitation, and medical decision making from all unmarried couples. It will permanently ban civil unions and dismantle domestic partner benefits that seniors, teachers, police officers and firefighters rely on." (hence the "hurting families")
That is NOT true.
Their claims are scare tactics.
On November 4th you can decide what you think will 'hurt Florida's families.'
If you don't live in Florida, and the definition of marriage is hanging in the balance in your state, be sure to vote and you can still find a way to get involved because doing something on Nov. 4th is not too late.
I've never been involved in an election in any way before other than the casting of my vote, but we are going to do a "small something" for this election.
My kiddos and I are going to place "Yes on 2" signs at voting sites. It will be easy! It's just one way to help although I think it's going to take some donut-bribery to get them up early enough to place signs around town by 7:00 AM. ; )
I want to be able to look back and remember that if "all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is good men to do nothing" (Edward Burke) then at least I did a very "small something."
That's a privilege we can thank the Founding Father's for.
