Remember to Love

8 May

Well, Today is another beautiful day in May.
It’s pretty quiet here and the weather is nice.
However, in my hometown of North Carolina, today is a voting day where people must decide to vote for or against Amendment One.

The existing law states this:
“Marriages, whether created by common law, contracted or performed outside of North Carolina, between individuals of the same gender are not valid in North Carolina.”

If Amendment one is adopted, it would add to Article 14 of the constitution and basically mean this:
“Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State. This section does not prohibit a private party from entering into contracts with another private party; nor does this section prohibit courts from adjudicating the rights of private parties pursuant to such contracts.”

Well I’m not going to tell you how to vote, BUT I will tell you this..
Remember to LOVE.

Everything I aspire to do, everything I am, is rooted in love.

I personally don’t like to get too over involved in politics, but I do read and research, and I do vote. Too many of my ancestors fought for my right to do so.

This amendment to me is full of gaps  and seems that it will lead to the political process having way too much control over our lives. This Amendment takes away rights. Don’t believe me? Research it yourself. How It Affects Everyone

I just want us to remember to love, people. The government has enough control as it is, why would we just want to give them even more?

Secondly, I would hate to see a friend hurt or harmed from what this Amendment stands for.

So today, I just want us to focus on love.
I want for us all to strive to be happy.
To strive to live in peace.
To stop trying to allow people to take away rights that aren’t theirs in the first place.

If we sit by quietly and allow Amendment 1 and other laws go into place, well then we might as well be right back in the 50s.

Until Next Time Much Love, Mrs. SPJ
