Wow. WOW. That is so awesome. Thank you for doing it.

People were running up and hugging us and posing with us and thanking us and grabbing our hands and taking our picture. Really, hundreds of people, maybe thousands. Funny thing was, the Mrs. and I were kind of having a fight, but decided to go anyway. We have a friend who was marching, and we all met up. We're happy we went!

Very neat! I actually saw your photo on a few of the blogs that I read, and had no idea it was you. Now I feel like I know a celebrity. :-)

Oh my. I love you. Thanks...

One of my oldest/best friends in the area celebrated 10 years of working at our statewide LGBT advocacy/rights organization just today. He started straight out of college and took a pay cut (down to $8/hr, and only part time at that). In that time he's worked up to being the executive director, and he is just a kick-ass powerhouse in a state that needs it.

Seeing your sign and realizing your commitment is actually making me a little teary.

Stewriffic, that's the thing--it's not like we really did anything. We made a poster and rode a bus for, like, 10 minutes and stood there a while. But, damn, it made people happy. Really affecting for my wife, whose own parents were inter-racial, but way back when it actually was illegal in places. Me, I just married the woman I loved.

I just saw that in a list of the best posters from the march on Buzfeed. Cool it was you.

Yeah, but do you know how many people wouldn't have even cared about the issue, much less bothered to make a sign AND actually go to the march? Too many.

Seems little to you. It shouldn't be a big deal, but it is. That's perhaps why so many people were so happy. Oh, and the parallels are pretty hard to argue with as well.

The return on our investment was just...we got so much love... well, it was really incredible. Amazing. Certianly a good use of our time!

Thank you for being an awesome person.

And thank you for marrying her, mrmoonpie. *grins cheekily*

Seriously, thanks to the both of you for following through with your commitment to what you believe in.

That's awesome, and a *great* idea for your sign. Very proud of youse moonpies!

Some friends just did a YouTube Promo for NY Marriage equality that has the same idea- their marriage would have once been illegal, and other people fought for their rights, so now they will fight for others.
