Proud of My Roots!
I was born, raised, educated and married in New York State. My children were born in New York State. I have never been so proud of my roots than I am right now. New York has truly brought us into the twenty-first century with its historic passage of a law that will give gays and lesbians the right to marry and all the legal protections and benefits that go with marriage. I now live in a state, Ohio, which I doubt will ever have the vision for legislation of that magnitude. This is the state of my grandchildren and great grandchildren. Hopefully they will one day change Ohio's vision. In the meantime, here's to you New York, proud to call you my home state.
