Protest as Pilgrimage
I've been engaged in a protest pilgrimage against Amendment One in the state of North Carolina. This amendment would make "marriage is between one man and one woman" as the only officially recognized union in the State.
I've been delivering and posting signs along the road, phone banks, handing out pamphlets; our dogs were on UNC's campus attracting young voters to vote against the Amendment, and tomorrow will be working at a polling place.
Just like civil right protesters before me, protesting is a pilgrimage, one step at a time, one day at a time.
