    After seeing the violence in the news from other protests against Prop 8, I decided my best course of action for now is to avoid this protest weekend and other protests until the opposition to Prop 8 can control their emotions more.

  2. JT,
    I am sorry you stayed away from what was a very upbeat, peaceful gathering. Are people angry and hurt? Yes, but the violence that you speak of was not at all widespread, as has been portrayed by the media.

    This is about more than being the “Prop 8 opposition” and I hope that you do not take the actions of a few and discount the real opportunity we have here to speak up, in our own lives, to each other and to those around us. We are going to be planning a peaceful march (not AGAINST any specific thing, but rather FOR equal rights)and I hope that you will be able to join us. Check back here for updates.

    Take care,
    Debra
