Wednesday LIVE From The Capitol
There were several school groups passing through this morning. In one group that passed in front of me on the Senate stairs, a girl quickly took out a sign she had made on 81/2 x 11 inch notebook paper. It had a big rainbow and bold lettering that read, "When Can We Get Married?. She was holding another girl's hand. This young girl had made a Marriage Equality protest sign in anticipation of her school's field trip to the Capitol so she could make an appeal to lawmakers for equality for her and her apparent partner. Wow! I asked her, as she continued walking and holding up her sign, if she'd made that sign to display here today and she nodded, shyly, without looking up. I told her, "GOOD FOR YOU! Good good!" It's the most touching thing I've ever seen here.
