And I Was There

Hawaii Civil Unions Bill
 Wins Final Approval
New Governor Will Sign!

Hawaii State Senate Chamber, Yesterday

Feeling the weight of history on my shoulders,
I was there for all those abused folks
who never lived to see this day.

There had been much contention and hurt feelings. . . Years of sign waving, lobbying,
tears and slurs;
but the day had really come.

After some final speech-i-fying:

 Souls Took Flight!

Song of the Day!

How Long Has He Waited?  

Will she ever understand
 how it used to be, or 
the battles fought for her?

Those are the people we elect. . . doing our business.

Mahalo - Thank You!
