Otep posted this on her Facebook page and I just had to share it with everyone.
....Just reading this made me tear up..
Video and quote are from Philip Spooner an 86yr old American hero and someone that demands a tremendous amount of respect in my book.
I am here today because of a conversation I had last June when I was
voting. A woman at my polling place asked me, "Do you believe in equal,
equality for gay and lesbian people?" I was pretty surprised to b...e
asked a question like that. It made no sense to me. Finally I asked
her, "What do you think our boys fought for at Omaha Beach?" I haven't
seen much, so much blood and guts, so much suffering, much sacrifice.
For what? For freedom and equality. These are the values that give
America a great nation, one worth dying for.
...now watch the video, open your mind and open your heart.
The story and video can be found here - - www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/10…
Photographer - Check
Wedding Hall - Check
Reception Hall - Check (same place)
Wedding Dress - Yes but with a story...
Jessy found her dress online, fell in love with the style, so she went to try on some of the designers other dresses to see if she liked the quality. She loved it and says it is extremely comfortable, so dress has been ordered.
Here is the kicker, there is a good chance that Jessy will be the only one in America to wear the dress. It is not an off the rack piece and as of yet only she has made an order for one, that to me would be majorly cool.
Sick with the flu, well flu sysptoms anyway. Being light headed and even dizzy at times really sucks ass. When I cough it feels like I only have one lung and have had no energy since this hit me.
