A little something to remember...

Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day that says,
"I will try again tomorrow."

Senator Onorato

I received the following email from Senator Onorato. Please email the Senator back stating your views that civil unions are not marriage.

onorato@senate.state.ny.us


Thank you contacting me regarding same sex marriage.

While I continue to support civil unions for gay and lesbian couples, I remain opposed to same-sex marriage. I believe that marriage is between one man and one woman.

In the months leading up to the vote, I heard frequently from constituents on both sides of the debate, and I believe my district is split on this issue.

Over the years, I have voted in favor of other legislation of importance to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, including the Sexual Orientation Non-Discrimination Act (SONDA) and the hate crimes law. I continue to support the Dignity for All Students Act and the Gender Identification Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA), and I hope they will be brought up for a vote in the new legislative session. While I do not support same-sex marriage, I would vote in favor of civil union legislation as a way to broaden legal protections and rights for same-sex couples.

I deeply respect the views of the LGBT community on same-sex marriage, and I have appreciated the candid and almost universall respectful dialogue we have had on this issue.


Rain

It rained all day yesterday, and my roommates and I got home in the foulest moods I've seen us in in a long time. It's amazing how much weather can control our emotions. I've realized it's not just the rain I hate, it's all the stupid people on the sidewalks now armed with umbrellas. So, not only are you doing the sidewalk slalom around people, you're also dodging umbrellas. Add to that, having wet feet and it makes for quite a ruined day.

HNT #116


In a sepia mood today. Marriage equality failed on the floor of the New York State Senate yesterday.
