LET LOVE BE RECOGNIZED BEFORE ITS UNRECOGNIZABLE

by Accidental Bear

What Sucks Worse Than Being A Second-Class Citizen? Forgetting Why You AreI saw this bouncing around blogs and websites yesterday. Crawling into bed spooned up ( or spork if you like) next to my better half and decided to end my wild friday night at home with this 2 minute clip of what appears to be Santa Clauses brothers sitting on a bench. The story has much more history and depth and signifigance much greater than just them.

ALL THEY WANT IS TO GET MARRIED WHILE THEY ARE STILL CAPABLE OF RECOGNIZING ONE ANOTHER BECAUSE SADLY, ONE HALF OF THIS DUO HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH Alzheimer’s WHICH IS RAPIDLY TAKING HIS MEMORY. ( SAD FACE)

Ed and Derence, of Palm Springs, CA, are a couple who submitted their story to Courage Campaign‘s call for stories in the wake of the California Supreme Court’s decision to accept the question regarding the issue of standing in the Proposition 8 case — just to decide whether or not they’re going to rule on the issue! — and then announce that they’re going to drag this decision out for six months-plus. Our field staff drove for several hours out to the desert last week to get their story on video because these are the human faces of what happens while the California Supreme Court insists on taking six months just to hear oral arguments, and more to issue a decision.
