Vienna Teng's "City Hall"

It's easy to feel discouraged about the fight for same-sex marriages in California. But then I remembered this song by Vienna Teng, "City Hall," especially these lines:

"10 years waiting for this moment of fate
when we say the words and sign our names
if they take it away again someday
this beautiful thing won’t change

[Tip of the hat to Land of the Not-So-Calm]

I don't live in California anymore, but if I did, I would get involved with Camp Courage, keeping the words of Vienna Teng's song in mind but also working to reverse Prop 8 because marriage is a fundamental right that should be available to all of us.
