Tubular Tuesdays: Same Love

Something about this video just makes me both enraged and at ease.

Thinking about the rights that are afforded to us, rights that have been won, and rights still being fought for, it empowers me - to know that progress is being made slowly and surely. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis's Same Love video takes a journey from the past, to the present, to the future. The spoken word-rap is touching and reminds me that there is much more to be sought after.

Not to get political, but to get political, the vote you make in this upcoming election is more than just for economic strength and stability It is on the social issues that we all have fought so very hard for. It can mean the difference between movement forward and movement backward. It can mean set-back to the civil rights movement for gays, women, and the middle class. One candidate is fighting much harder for you than the other. You make the choice which one he is.
