I Do -- and I hope you do, too.
Do you support the right of any human being to marry the person they love? The right to say 'I Do' to a life of commitment and sharing with that one special person? I do. (Quote taken from blurb from I Do! -- an anthology in support of marriage equality published by: MLR Press, LLC)
I am very proud to be a part of the collection of twenty stories of "love and commitment" with my story "Finally, Forever". All proceeds of the sale of this book go to the Lambda Legal Fund's fight for marriage equality.
This will be the shortest essay because it actually is the most difficult one for me to write. I find that words fail me and so I am just going to share with you some links to articles, blogs, and news stories that I've come across to share why I feel so strongly about this cause.

So, I began this week with HEA endings and end with the wish for HEA endings for everyone.
Thank you for sharing this week with me.
