My Hero


This beautiful, busy mother of three has been my hero this last month. She has worked relentlessly for Yes on Proposition 8. She has posted on her blog numerous times, called tons of unknown people, walked in neighborhoods, stood in the pouring rain and held signs while people either honked in support or ridiculed her, and made the campaign a priority in her life. You might think that this just comes easy to her but it doesn't. She said that she and another mom walked in some neighborhoods and were scared to death to do it. But they did. She and Jody took their three children and knocked on doors. Today she was in line to get gas at Costco and was calling people while she was waiting. I can't tell you how proud I am of you Kelly for really getting out and supporting what you believe in. It is a great cause and hopefully, because of heroes like you, it will pass. The mother has learned from the child. Thank you for your great lesson. (I just heard that today she called 150 people and stood on a street corner with a sign for 3 hours amidst people yelling and even throwing eggs at her. Amazing.)
P.S. I did another post today, it's below with big news from Alex.

Aw. Thanks mom. So nice of you to notice my efforts. I just felt like I wouldn't be able to look at myself in the mirror, without feeling guilty, if it didn't pass and I knew I didn't do all that I could. It was amazing to be a part of history. My strong convinctions come from my two wonderful parents who have always shown that family is the most important thing. Love you!

I also admire Kelly for all her hardwork. That would've been really tough and I'm proud of her. What an experience!

Good job Kelly! Now you can breathe a big sigh of relief that it's over and you were a major part in getting it passed. You are awesome!
