I'm a political activist!

I never thought there would be a time when I would feel the need to become a political activist.  4  judges have forced me to become one.  Proposition 8 is the most important issue that our generation will face.  The time is now, we are the people to face this challenge and California is the place where the battle lines are being drawn.  I've been to two Yes on 8 rallies in the past 8 days.  My first ever political rallies.  They were both inspiring but the most important thing I took away with me is that we all need to be more than cheerleaders.  We need to get up and make a difference!  Here are some highlight pictures.

Last Monday, at the start of the Yes on 8 bus tour in Sacramento.  I traveled there with my sisters in law and their kids.




This morning, on the steps of the Capital in Sacramento.  (if you look closely you can see a homemade sign saying "who stole my yes on 8 sign?"  I thought it was great!


This is the couple who filed a suit against the state of California over the removal of the terms "Bride" and "Groom" from the marriage licence forms and refused to get married as "Party A and Party B".


The ladies from the ward in front of the Capital this morning.



Hurray for Freedom of Speech and the right to assemble peacefully!  God bless America.

i'm so glad you went. i was afraid to take kids to this one, as i wasn't sure if the opposition would be closer than last time. it looks like a great rally. just a few more days to go. i hope that our best efforts are enough to pass it.

I am so glad you are standing with me on this important matter, I am scared for the future. But all we can do is pray and leave it in The hands of God. We did all we could also for Prop 8
