letters to the editor
First let me say that I can hardly type because I am so excited! The timing of this article is perfect! YOU WON’T BELIEVE THIS BUT JUST LAST NIGHT I RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING EMAIL INDICATED BELOW, REGARDING SB 48. Immediately after seeing the excerpt that I penned which you featured in your recent publication, I phoned Marc Haupert of California Faith for Equality and shared it with him. I thought that this battle was over since those who opposed SB 48 failed to gather enough signatures to undo what the Governor had done by signing the bill into law, but as you can see we are in for a fierce battle in 2012. Words cannot express how grateful I am to you for featuring this excerpt. I have also asked Marc who works closely with Equality California and several other LGBT organizations to share the article with everyone he knows as well.
Shelly, admittedly I am a little weary because I have been fighting for Civil Rights both nationally and internationally for some time and at times I become discouraged but what you have done by including this article in your publication has encouraged me and infused me with new strength and determination; two things I will definitely need in 2012 to prevail over injustice and discrimination. I feel I owe you so much! Thank you for stopping by the side of the road to pick up, rescue, and bandage a wounded soldier so that I could continue fighting the good fight of faith!
I send my love, sincere gratitude, heartfelt appreciation and prayers your direction -- for your continued success and prosperity!
Your Brother and Friend,
