5-4-10 – MELANIE NATHAN
Tonight when you go to sleep and you look over at the person you fell in love with, married and vowed to spend the rest of your life with;
Think about Madison, a Binational same sex partner, who has not been able to reach over toward his beloved, for the better part of many years;
Tomorrow when you and your family get up and eat oatmeal, drink steamy coffee with smooth buttered toast;
Think of Madison whose heart breaks as he thinks of his beloved, starving abroad;
Tomorrow when you go to the office and you head South on the 101, and look at the motorists in their vehicles set for the days adventure,
Think about Madison who is sitting in his store, trying to reach his life partner, unsure if the time change or the satellite blocks, will render his calls useless;
And so it goes on… and on…. and on….
and while it does
Think of Madison
Because there are those amongst us, who when they go to sleep tonight and look over at the person they married and vowed to spend the rest of their life with, will not give a damn, even though they may well be one of the very ones with the power and congressional capability to change this egregious and heartbreaking day for Madison.
After you watch this Video of Senator Jeff Session at the Senate Judiciary hearing almost a year ago to the date,
Think about Madison and Imagine how he must feel with horrendous people like this … voted by Bigots so that they can govern as Bigots
and then again Think about Madison.
Melanie has authored a VISA – for Binational LGBT Permanent Partners, fiance’s and spouses- as a stop gap measure to bring Bi-nationals back from exile and to help those currently facing unnecessary legal consequences.
