It was 9:30 in the morning. I was 15 and was feeling unusually girly earlier that morning so I wore my hair down and wore a skirt instead of my usual jean shorts. Fittingly I was sitting in my 10th grade World History class. As our teacher turned on the TV I knew that life and indeed the course of this world would be changed forever. The date, September 11th 2001 and almost nine years later a group of American Muslims wish to build a mosque/community center near the site of these attacks and I say we let them.
I was so excited when I heard yesterday that a federal judge overturned California’s Proposition 8 for being unconstitutional. Gays and lesbians cannot get married at the time though because it came down soon after that it won’t be officially over turned until after the proponents have a chance to appeal.
