Quote of the Day

"You know, I was married for 23 years to the love of my life and he died six years ago...I think of all the wonderful years we had and the wonderful fringe benefits of having three beautiful children...and so I just think to myself: how could I deny anyone the right to have that incredible bond with another individual in life. To me it seems almost cruel." Republican Representative Maureen Walsh said this week of her decision to vote in favor of gay marriage in Washington State. (via Huffington Post://www.huffingtonpost.com/mobileweb/article/1266758.html) To anyone who has been married, hopes to be married, who has known people part of a beautiful marriage, and to countless others, her statement definitely hits home.
