Having an entire day off from school on Tuesday, will allow all of us plenty of time to make it to the polls. I hope that everyone who is registered to vote in my program goes to the polls. I don't know what is happening in the local politics for the most part. I do know that we have a House of Representatives spot that may get turned over to a democrat if enough people come out to vote. More importantly, people need to vote "no" on Ammendment 1. This is an ammendment that wants to declare that marriage can only be allowed between a man and a woman. There are nine states voting on similar ammendments.
Hopefully the US population and government will realize one day that outlawing marriage between two people is wrong. The fact that an ammendment such as this is on the ballot is a bit laughable. I am sure the rest of the world is laughing at us. Why should we waste our time worrying about who falls in love and gets married? All marriages should be celebrations of love, no matter who is getting married. Lastly, I have yet for anyone to tell me how I or anyone else will be affected if my friends in CO, my neighbors in DC, or more recently my neighbors in Columbia decided to get married.
