The Meaning of Independence

(Please note this was originally writen on another blog on July 5, 2009)

Yesterday we set off fireworks, had picnics and barbecues  all in celebration of our nation’s independence from Britain. However, I think Independence Day should mean more than us thumbing our noses at the British because we beat them back in 1776. Think for a second about what our forefathers were fighting for. They were sick of the intolerance of the British, and the discrimination of being treated as second class citizens. They came to America and bravely fought for a place where they could end all that.

You know what — we’ve become hypocrites!!!

When you think about it, don’t we do those same things right now? Aren’t we the ones who look down on people who may be ‘different’ from us? Whether it be race, religion, sexual orientation, family make up.

My husband and I have what I call an ‘alternative family’  where our children have 4 legs. To A LOT of people that is wrong and unhealthy. I’ve even been told that the “purpose” of marriage is to procreate! Can you believe that?

I joke and say that the ‘GLBT’ movement is my role model. Not that we want our cats to marry but we want our families to be accepted!

Whether a family has 2 Dads or 2 Moms, or the children are 3 cats — the families should all be treated the same! They are families! Whether or not the children are biological or adopted, there shouldn’t be any difference! Nor should there be any difference wether the children have 2 legs or 4 legs!Parents love their children. End of story.

I also believe that there are two kinds of women in the world, those who should have kids, and those who shouldn’t. But that will have to be the subject of another blog

Talk soon & remember to kiss an animal.
