Prop. 8 passed!
After hundreds of hours of walking my neighborhood, phone-calling, commenting on YouTube videos, blogging, writing letters to the editors of 6 major newspapers and magazines, sign waving, counting votes at the polling center, displaying and protecting yard signs, fasting, praying, and blood, sweat, and tears....the voters have spoken, and marriage regained it's rightful definition - between a man and a woman only. Frankly, I feel jubilant. I feel justified and vindicated. I feel like a huge weight is off my shoulders and I can finally relax...for awhile.
We were told by Coalition leaders that grass-roots campaigns can effect the vote by a 6% margin. Prop. 8 is passed on a 4% margin. I think we can safely say that our efforts have passed this Proposition. We were told that there has NEVER, in the history of politics, been such a huge grass-roots effort. WE MADE HISTORY! Look, America, at what you can do! And, may I say (yes, a bit smugly, I admit) Look at what HOUSEWIVES can do!
My heartfelt gratitude goes out to the following:
The voters, who put up with all the phone calls, door knocks, and door hangers and voted YES anyway!
My fellow Yes on 8 Campaign workers - you are an amazing bunch of people and I am honored to be on your team!
My Heavenly Father, who heard and answered fervent prayers.
