Surprise marriage proposal at Home Depot

13 Sep

I stumbled upon this cute video today and I have to admit it brought tears to my eyes. For a long time I’ve been… judgmental toward gay/lesbian people not because I’m a religious person (I’m not) but because I believe in what happens-in-the-bedroom-stays there. I’m a very private person when it comes to relationships and old fashioned. What can I say? I’m not perfect.

Today I have to admit I learned a great lesson, thanks to this wonderful gay couple. And I think I owe them and their community a great deal of apologies for not accepting them for who they are: people who are entitled to find love and be loved. People who go to Home Depot to buy lumber. People who dance. People who sing along. People who surround themselves with friends and family and count on their support and love. People who go down on one knee to propose. You know, people like us.

I’ll probably remember this day for a long time. It’s the day I opened my eyes to see the world more colorful, more loving and above everything–more tolerant.
