1 Struggle 1 Fight

Unless you've either been living under a media-proof rock, or you're not from San Francisco/California, you must have already heard of the amazing effort undertaken by some incredibly dedicated activists from the LGBTQ community to make their voices against marriage inequality HEARD. They are on a six-day march from San Francisco to Sacramento, enlightening minds and hearts along the way. Every day they meet folks who haven't been clued into the incredible injustice done by the passage of Prop 8 this past November, and every day they make more friends who join the fight as ardent supporters. They are doing a kick-ass job getting word out into the media and attracting the support of everyday regular folks like you and me.

Thanks to today's wonderful technology, they are keeping a Twitter to update us along the way: who they meet, where they go, the struggles they face. Please do yourself a favor and check it out, it's truly inspirational... and you know I don't say this a lot! This is like Three Cups of Tea inspirational. You go, guys.
