"Dear President Obama,What you did yesterday, coming out in support of same sex marriage, was brave and courageous from a political standpoint. As a mother I thank you because I know you have saved the lives of countless teenagers considering suicide having been shunned by their families, friends and churches simply because of who they are. Now at least they know that their President stands beside them.
While I am not 100% behind same-sex "marriage" I fully support civil unions. However I think the currently bullying, insults and general gay bashing needs to end. I do feel that there needs to be more acceptance of people who are different then the cookie-cutter-model person.
