I am always proud to be a native Washingtonian and I don't know that I have ever been prouder than I am right now. Washington has joined the ranks of the few states that have signed a marriage equality law into effect. I only wish we had done it sooner and been more of a leader.
I am also proud to say our Governor Gregoire hails from my alma mater, Auburn High School. Go Gregoire! Go Trojans! That's the most excited I have ever been for my former school.
Now, let's just hope when the signatures come in and this law gets suspended and forced to a ballot issue this fall that the people of this great state do the right thing and fall on the right side of history.
