We're Sign Waving!!! YES on 8!!!!

If you would have told me 20 years ago that we would be defending marraige between a man and a woman I wouldn't have believed you. This whole experience has been UNBELIEVABLE! We have been heavily involved doing our part to protect marriage. I'm NOT a political person and seeing how the oposition has behaved during this campaign only reaffirms how much I dislike politics. But there comes a time when you have to take a stand to protect yourselves from having your rights taken away from you.
Every political commerical the opposition has come out with has been distorted and twisted with disception and lies. (Sound famaliar??) Our signs have been destroyed, graffied, stolen, we have been cursed at, objects thrown at us and we've been called intollerant and bigots. UNBELIEVABLE! Who's not being tolerant here?
Statistics have shown that grass-roots efforts previal! Being involved with our Stake Point Person has shown me every step of the effort. It's been overwhelmingly amazing! I'd love to know how many thousands of hours have been spent on protecting marriage. A battle worth fighting for!! Never before has the scriptures spoken more clearly to us about our times. How blessed we are to have a modern day prophet to lead and direct us. We have done our best to fight this battle and we hope it is a victory. Every vote counts and we need every YES vote out there!

Donna, I can't even tell you how impressed I am with ALL the effort you and your family have done to protect our families!!! I'm not even a part of this official vote, but I have SUCH strong feelings about this proposition too! I plan on being glued to the TV on Tuesday, and hope all the prayers and fasting that has taken place will pay off!

Good for you for standing your ground and for holding fast to what you KNOW is right!

Love you guys so much!

I can't believe all that stuff has been going on to you personally!! Scary out there. Glad you've had the courage to take a stand. Hope it all goes well. You and your family look great!!

Way to go guys! It isn't easy--we were asked to go door to door in Las Vegas when it was on the ballot in NV. It was uncomfortable to take a stand a voice what we believe to be a true and correct principle. I'm sure it's much worse in CA. I am really proud of you and your family, and hope your efforts make a difference!

I am so touched by the heart felt efforts your family has put into this issue. Our thoughts and prayers have been with you as we have felt more concern over this issue than who the next presidential candidate would be.
Your work definately paid off!! I read a news article about the strength of this campaign in the Murrieta/Temecula area.
YEAH for Prop 8!!
We're super proud of you!!
