2008 brought with it countless unforgettable moments ~ the most significant of all being, of course, the election of Barack Obama to the presidency of the United States. This event brought with it a kernel of hope for Cas and I personally. During his campaign he wrote an open letter to the American gay community which you can read here:
Hope has been the key theme in our lives since Cas and I met just 18 days into George W. Bush’s disastrous first term of office in 2001 and it will continue to be our theme throughout 2009. No matter what happens as far as gay rights are concerned under Obama’s tenure Cas and I will prevail. We don’t feel the need to make a New Year’s resolution around this issue because we have gone the distance over and over again and know that, beyond being together 24/7 , for us there is no other way.
