Same Sex Marriage

                                                                                                            March 15, 2012


Dear Mr. President,

            My name is Geoffry.  I am a student at Parkway West Middle School, and I am writing to you today to share my thoughts about the topic of same sex marriage.  I first found out about this topic on the internet when we had to find a topic for our commentary essay in Communication Arts class.  I became interested about this topic because I believe the laws are wrong, and they're very discriminating.

            To begin, Laws against gay marriage discriminate.  As a nation, we would never tell a Hispanic couple or African American couple they couldn't marry because of who they were.  Just like we wouldn't tell a person with disabilities he or she couldn't marry because of the way he or she was born.  We need to allow people the right to marry their soul mate.  Clearly, homosexual laws are wrong and just plain discriminating.

            What's wrong with our world that we won't allow a homosexual person the right to marry?  It just goes against the whole pursuit of happiness.  Mr. President, I have many ideas of what you can do, but the most important solution is to drop or lift the laws prohibiting gay marriage nationwide, and to stop discriminating the people's way of life.

            Thank you for taking time out of your busy life to read this letter.
