Senator Rubio,

I am petitioning you to join the majority of your colleagues in support of the basic civil right to marriage for same-sex couples. Countless families headed by same-sex parents you claim to represent in Florida are being denied rights and benefits that would help them to raise their children with the same opportunities and privileges as children of opposite-sex parents. I believe that an America that extends the rights and benefits of marriage to ALL parents is an America more able to protect our children and secure a better future for everyone.

    Equality -> May 5th*

    I work and first and foremost volunteer for our LGBT community. I have been for the last 3+ years, and I am not done, yet. Actually, I won’t ever be done supporting my community, because the gays lesbians transgenders and straights are all ONE. Some people who are just straight do not realize the fact that the only ‘Difference’ between them and a gay lesbian or transgender is only based on their attraction or like towards someone. It is just a different type of liking. That is all there is to it. We are all different. God created us different. If he really damned all the ones who are part or the LGBT community, then what purpose would he have towards saving and forgiving those who have killed, tortured, and caused hurt, fear, crime, killings, and non-stop war to the world? If God forgives these sorts of people, than The gay community shouldn’t be a primary cause of fuss. In fact, it shouldn’t even be compared to others who commit crime, war, those who kill and make the poor suffer. But I felt the ‘need’ to, as sometimes others can only relieve themselves of an accusation when others such as myself present another purpose or reason for forgiveness in front of them. And then hopefully some will understand, possibly better or more than before.

    We see this world lived full of hate, judgement, disrespect, infidelity, remorse, guilt, pointing targets, accusations, and all in all negativity. But no one ever seems to sit down for a minute and NOT ‘justify’, but ‘understand’ why. Only THEN, we will all come to the conclusion that today’s war will never stop simply because it is a war based on a variety of beliefs over religion, politics, and the government itself.

    So ask yourself: while the world is at war, what are YOU fighting for? If you can answer yourself that question, then one day at a time I believe that we can come to helping others understand why everyone (and thus ever country) is different from one another, as it should be, but that at the end of the day, we should not make it a regards to starting or continuing war amongst us and the world, but actually come to means to end the war, and be simply happy among each other. It just comes down to as simple as that. Therefore, it CAN BE DONE; the reason why it still isn’t, is because people choose to have it that way.

    So what do you choose to do? You already know my choice of act, and that of many others along my side. Now, it is time for you to show us yours. Show us your next move. We’ll be waiting.
