Spread Happiness

While I like Keith Olberman, I sometimes find him to be a bit too harsh, too shouty. Tonight, however, he expressed my thoughts exactly regarding Prop 8.
You are asked now to stand, not on a question of politics, not on a question of religion, not on a question of gay or straight. You are asked now to stand, on a question of love. All you need do is stand, and let the tiny ember of love meet its own fate. You don't have to help it, you don't have it applaud it, you don't have to fight for it. Just don't put it out. Just don't extinguish it. Because while it may at first look like that love is between two people you don't know and you don't understand and maybe you don't even want to know. It is, in fact, the ember of your love, for your fellow person.
Or, to put it more succinctly, "Come on people now, smile on your brother, everybody get together, try to love one another right now."
