Free Speech

Today I am grateful for freedom of speech. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be a woman in a progressive society, where I am able speak my mind and put forth my opinions without any fear of repercussion.

Tomorrow I am going to exercise my rights and march in a rally in support of marriage equality. It’s a cause very close to my heart, and I am very grateful for the opportunity to stand up and be counted.

I am especially grateful and proud that I’m able to attend with my girlfriend; something I could never have done had I been born a century earlier. I thank all the men and women that came before me that fought for our rights.

I think I’ll wear this t-shirt tomorrow that I bought in Mykonos last year…. 😀
