I sent a very cordial letter to Gov. Paterson. I congratulated him on his "vision," and I also included a personal story of the disaster (which marriage would have avoided) I suffered when my lover passed. Today I received a PERSONALLY addressed (form) letter that was most gracious, I want to share it with this blog (hopefully some still read old stories)

Dear Mr., Thank you for your support concerning same-sex marriage rights. It is affirming to know that you, along with many other New Yorkers, share the same feeling on marriage equality.

Currently, same-sex marriages are legal in Canada, South Africa, various European nations, and American states Massachussetts and California. With the recent decision in Martinez v. County of Monroe, these marriages will now have their rights honored in the State of New York. This new decision represents a major point of progress to ensuring marriage equality amongst all people. I firmly believe that this decision will only help the Empire State, as we continue to take significant steps forward in the 21st Century.

Again, I thank you for contacting me and for your thoughtful words of support. Warmest regards. Sincerely, David A. Paterson

WOW! I had to share this with the blog!
