    My 18 year old daughter is very excited about voting in this, her first election. She’s closely following many political issues. Proposition 8 is something that she’s very frustrated about and has ranted on many times. Oh, but we don’t live in California. I am going to pass this on to her and other teenagers in my life. It’s very inspirational.
    Thanks for posting it.
