Sadly, I do not have HBO. *sobs*

No, it will be ok. The movie will be on DVD before we know it. But for those of you that do have it, check it out. The Lovings were an interracial couple whose legal battle to live their lives as a married couple made it all the way to the Supreme Court and resulted in the legalization of marriage between the races in 1967. Yay, right?

I’m obviously very thankful for their part in the civil rights struggle and really hope that sometime in my children’s lifetime, this “race” thing will be a distant memory.

  1. I grew up in San Francisco for most of my teenage years and all the way turhogh college, and for me living there, there were so many things that I took for granted. Biracial families, same sex families with children, all of these type of relationships were so common, that it wasn’t until I left at the age of 22 to attend a graduate program back east that I realized how fearful and out of touch some people can be. I can only imagine the difficulty that you experience, but I think that the best thing that can be done is to teach our children that anger will never solve their problems, and that they have to know themselves that they are just as they should be. I know that it is not the same, but I have a sone who has some neurological issues, and somedays people want to know what his problem is. I could make excuses, or become so ticked off at their lack of compassion, or ignorace, but all that I can do is teach him that he is ok, that there is nothing wrong with him. I try and remind him all the time that we all have a challenge to face, and for him right now, it is going to be staying true to who he is, and not allowing others to define his worth. It is painfully hard, but it is all that I can do.Have a great weekend.-= Heather s last blog .. =-.
