A Battle Worth Remembering

There are certain battles that feel great to be a part of, especially if you’re the one coming out on top without ever making your opponent feel like they lost. There is a lot to be said for knowing how to fight. It is, to an extent, an art form, and it should come as no surprise that some of the most efficient fighting techniques require minimal exhaustion, and maximal exertion. The ability to get a point across, walking away unscathed, knowing that you won the battle without bullying or stampeding, but through eloquence and clarity, is incredibly satisfying. A battle worth remembering, is one where both sides walk away aware not only of the influence they had, but on the influence they felt.

Today, Wednesday, April 9th, representatives from Equality Illinois are going to the State House to lobby for recognition of Civil Unions in Illinois. It is thanks to their tireless and thankless efforts that we can strive to lead an environment of acceptance and diversity, and teach future generations how to choose their battles. To learn about a truly inspiring battle won through reason and love, read Laura Hester’s story, as told in the compelling and Academy Award winning movie, Freeheld, by Cynthia Wade. So if you, like me, are willing to voice your support for a change that will benefit millions of lives at the click of the mouse, please go to Civil Unions Illinois and know that you would have helped win one battle, peacefully.
