Maybe the decade...or the millenium?

In Dan Barlow's piece this morning on the first public hearing of the House Speaker's gay-marriage commission, officially known as the Vermont Commission on Family Recognition and Protection, that was held in Johnson.

Ellen Hill began to cry Wednesday night as she remembered how her conservative father – who once shunned her when she came out as a lesbian – later accepted her partner into their family at their 2000 civil union.

“I could see happy tears in his eyes,” said Hill, a resident of Jeffersonville. “He said that it is not who we love or how we love, but that we love."

Food for thought, eh?

"Not who we love or how...but that we love"

Ultimately, mes amis, we are truly in the same boat, eh?
