Go Grandma!!!! Things will change....and very slowly, but they are still happening. When human beings realize what the real meaning of acceptance is; there will be world peace.

That is a very lovely speech. You gotta love grandmas that are filled with so much wisdom.

Wow, great video. Westboro Baptist Church protested a block from my house yesterday; even in South Carolina, they were far outnumbered by counter-protesters.

If only people without gay parents and without gay sons were speaking out in support of equal rights... Love that this lady came around for her son and that he was able to be open to her so long ago. It says a lot about them. My hopes are there for Iowa to yield to human dignity and not give in to the evil forces out there who want to scapegoat and demonize their gay fellow citizens.

She looks good for 80 years-old. That's amazing her parents were born in the 1890's

We could use some of that Midwestern common sense here in Wisconsin. Have you heard about our governor? He is playing military dictator and it is surreal. It is so strange.
