The time is now

— Sputtering, I left the breakfast table on Thursday morning after reading the paper’s editorial instructing me to sit back and wait. After all, momentum is on my side for same-gender marriage to — someday — arrive at my Pennsylvania doorstep! I have waited a lifetime already and that doesn’t count the fruitless waiting of those who came before me and who, each passing day, lose the time to wait any longer for “giving peace a chance”.

Borrowing from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “The time is always right to do what is right.” On the issue of same-gender marriage, the time is now.

I am proud of the ACLU’s action on behalf of what is right. I applaud our Attorney General Kathleen Kane for standing up for what is right. Let’s move forward and let’s do it now!

Helen Nunn,
