An Article I wrote on the effects of Post Traumatic Stress
I am a huge supporter of marriage for all. I don’t believe that ANYONE has the right to tell another human being who they can love and whether or not they are worthy or equal enough to declare that love in the form of marriage.
The day I got married was one of the happiest days of my life. Before everyone I loved and cherished I stood at an alter and declared my commitment, my love, and my desire to begin my new life with my husband. Every time I look at my wedding ring it is a reminder to me of that day. It is a symbol that good or bad, we are a team that sticks together and gets through things with a partner by their side.
I believe with all my heart that all human beings deserve that right. They deserve the chance to stand before those they love and declare their commitment to one another.
Marriage is a celebration. A declaration. Perhaps most importantly it is a promise. To your partner, to yourself, that this person is whom you choose to travel life’s journey with. This person is whom you choose to sail the waters with, through the storms, through the calm seas.
Do marriages sometimes fail? Of course they do. We are all flawed and perfection only exists in fairytales and Hollywood movies. The right though to try, the right to make that promise, to make that declaration is a universal one that we should all be entitled to have.
God, my God loves us all. He is a being of compassion, of humanity, of tolerance and acceptance. I refuse to believe in anything but. You can quote any quote you wish to use it will never change my stance, nor as I am sure will the post change yours if you disagree with what I write. It’s the beauty of being individuals. You are free to think as you will as I am free to write how I feel.
I am a proud supporter of HUMAN RIGHTS not gay rights. In the end all we have is the love we’ve given and the love we received. That’s a universal right for every man and every woman no matter whom they choose to share it with
