And A Child Will Lead Them, At Least In Denver
A Denver third-grader was front and center at the Colorado State Capitol Saturday pushing for same sex marriage in the state.
Ethan McNamee arranged the rally as an independent class project.
He was concerned about the issue after hearing about anti-gay remarks on the playground and then learning about a same sex couple in his neighborhood that couldn't get married.
"Everybody is different in a good way," he said.
Ethan believes that if two people love each other that is the only issue to be considered.
Ethan took it upon himself to arrange the rally and line up the guest speakers. He admitted it was more work then he thought it would be, but adds it was fun.
