What I want for my child, who is now four years old...
I want him to live in a country of which he can be proud.
I want him to know a time when people who love each other can marry, or at least, be able to have a union where they can count on health insurance.
I want him not to know his friends by the color of their skin, but by their names.
I want him to feel confident that the decisions of women's bodies are made by those individual women, and not some man in his 70s.
I want him to know people of all colors, religions, and ethnic groups (and sexual orientations) and not be afraid of people, but to embrace our differences.
I want him to grow up healthy and happy. This is what I wish for you, the love of my life.
