This is what it’s all about

Forget the polemics and arguments, this video shows what the marriage equality debate is really all about: Love. Richard Dorr (84) & John Mace (91) have been waiting 61 years for the right to marry.

Richard says, “The only sanctifying element in a marriage is what the two people bring to it. It’s not by somebody saying words.” John adds, speaking of the younger generation: “They deserve better than what we had… It’s terrible to be looked down on and considered a second-class citizen.”

I hope the New York state senate does right by them.
