Favorite Quote:
The world and I are young-
Never on lips of man, never since time began
Has gladder song been sung.
-Edna St. Vincent Millay


I've been told,

"don't sweat the small stuff"
but you must know that isn't me
Argentina gets props for their

conduct-
If the US would let people be free.
The hypocrisy of our great nation
Lies in the paper that started it

all-
There are three rights worth

protecting
In short, "a person's a person,

no matter how small."
Yet we disregard that one statement
From the pachyderm with initials

T.J.
And don't allow people to marry
Just because of the fact that


they're gay.


The author's comments:
i support same sex marriage. I don't see why a nation who is so anal about protecting the freedom of its citizens would not allow human beings happiness on the basis of one little particular. When Argentina legalized same sex marriage i was ecstating and i hope it will put more pressure on the US to make it happen.
