Perhaps some of you may recognize me from my postings in the San Francisco and Death Valley forums. I am also active in the Switzerland and Netherlands forums. All of us, from the destination experts to the one-off posters, make a difference when we respond to someone's request for help or information. When we share our knowledge, we help not only the original poster, but also the anonymous user searching for information. In the end we don't know exactly how many travel plans our single posts have improved. Does it matter? If we helped even one person, wouldn't it still be worth it?
Tomorrow you will all have a chance to make a real difference in people's lives. Please go out and vote.
The whole world will be watching the election in California. They will be watching to see if we vote to write discrimination into our constitution or if we choose tolerance and acceptance for all our diverse citizens. Please vote NO on Proposition 8. This law is wrong and it's bad for California.
Do you know anyone who would be affected by this law? Yes, you do. Me. Am I a second-class citizen? Would you treat me differently? Would you vote to take away my right to move back to my beautiful home state with my partner, who is French? Please, Californians, this vote means everything to us. It will determine if we have the same basic rights as anyone else.
