A child will teach them

Watch and listen as Matthew Lannon, 12, a sixth-grader at Wheeler School in Providence testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday evening at the Rhode Island State House about marriage equality…

If there’s one thing you don’t mess with in life, it’s love. My parents and all the other gay and lesbian people here want to be happy, just like you. All they want is to be treated fairly. But unlike most of you, they have to come again here year after year and explain over and over why their love is equal to yours. This year, you have the opportunity to change that. I say, choose love.

The United States is changing, and it’s the youngsters who will change it. I only wish my generation could have seen the light.
