Why Does It Matter?

The conversation at our dining table this past weekend was initiated by my son. He asked us, “why does it matter if other people want to marry the same sex, if they love and care for each other?” That came from my 14yr old son.

It shouldn’t, was our reply. But there are other people out there who believes a certain way and we must respect them too and hope that these people would also respect other people who believes a different way.

And then last night, North Carolina passed the same-sex marriage ban. I went to bed with a heavy heart, and wished for our move to happen soon. You go through the days feeling like you’ve accomplished something in raising your children well, and then you wake up one morning feeling defeated coz you can’t find the words on how to explain to them why certain things are unfortunately, just the way they are. 🙁
