I have watched this video three times today, and it's made me cry each time.
A month from today, the California Supreme Court will hear oral arguments, deciding within 90 days on the validity of Prop 8 and futures of the 18,000 marriages that took place last year before the election. One of my coworkers was proudly married before Prop 8 passed. And I still remember the joyful couples I watched get married on the steps of City Hall not so long ago.

You can read more here at Calitics, where I found the video. Still waiting for this country to get its heart in the right place for everyone... maybe March 5 will be a new beginning in the most loving direction.
UPDATE 2/06, 7:33am: Good morning lovelies. I woke up to such great and heartfelt comments to this post this morning. Thank you for sharing.
On that note, please do read Cynthia's comment about the tragic story of her mother and her partner, and the documentary about their lives and deaths. The link in the comment is incorrect. You can learn more about the Pittman Puckett Documentary at their blog and the official website. The story is heartbreaking, and as Mari mentioned too, this is the 10-year anniversary of Matthew Shepard's murder.
AND, as Gabby so astutely mentioned, the list of donors who contributed to the Yes on 8 campaign now can be found at the California Secretary of State. Check it out here. And here is the list of those who donated in excess of $1000. You'll notice quite a few out-of-state large donors on that particular list. Lots of $$$ rolling in, and quite a bit from outside of California. Read the post on Calitics, and you may find the sizeable reimbursements to certain individuals very disturbing.
AND, go to Courage California's website, who made this touching video, and sign their letter to the state Supreme Court here.
