Thanks

Being in the midst of all this Proposition 8 stuff is difficult. It isn't easy to stand up for what you believe in when people say such hateful things. BUT I wanted to tell Mom and Dad thanks. Thank you for being such wonderful examples. Thank you for being so strong in the church and for not being afraid to say what you believe even when it's not popular. It's a heart-warming sight to see Dad standing atop a fountain structure with a huge Yes on 8 banner. It was fun to run down the street with Mom to balance out the opposition. It was amusing to see Dad hold is much bigger and more visible sign in front of more opposition.

So thank you again. Thank you for your testimonies and for sharing your feelings on these political and spiritual matters. Thank you for following the prophet. Thank you for supporting us in whatever feelings we might have on various issues.

It's one thing to say that you believe in something but it's another thing to go out and DO it.

So one last time before everybody votes. YES ON 8!!!!

Yay! So glad it passed. Good work, you guys. I'm so grateful to be part of family who makes the right choices and isn't afraid to let everyone know and encourage others to do the same. But now you just have to stop being bigots, okay? ;)

When I was holding a sign somebody came up to me and said, "you propely don't even know what it means so just put it away". But I didn't litsen I just kept holding it up.

P.S What do mean by bigots Lindsay?

Carly said...

Good for you Will!

And bigot means a person who has no tolerance for anyone who believes or acts differently than themselves. Make sense? People called us bigots because that's what they believed. BUT we are NOT bigots! :)

I'm so proud of all my kids for being strong in their beliefs, especially since they all had to take a lot of crap at school. Good job guys.
Casey don't spend all your sign- holding money in one place.;)
