Letter: Government must evolve too
My partner is the one whom I admire, who supports me, makes me laugh, keeps me sane and hugs me when I cry. My partner is my best friend, and I married him because I love him and want him in my life forever.
I did so because I wanted to show him my love and devotion, as I would have wanted to do if I had found those qualities in someone else. It wouldn’t matter if that person was a women or a man, young or old, black or white. As a nation we have worked hard to deter racism and sexism, to create equality for those with disabilities and different religious beliefs, just to name a few. We have tried to remove these barriers so that people will feel more equal, have less pain in their life and not be made to feel ashamed for being who their creator made them.
No matter who you believe you creator is, you know that they never wished you to feel you were an outcast or wished you had barriers beyond your own limitations. They wanted you to feel empowered, filled with love and happiness in your life. So why are we allowing our government to continue to afflict any group for any reason? We have evolved and so must our government. I have my freedoms and rights, so must others.
