November 2009 Dateline
I am very excited to share the torch-bearing for the next leg of the journey with those 20, 25 or even 30 years younger than me. I want to hear their dreams, and how they think they can realize them, and I want to tell them about the great achievements of the past 40 years. I want to reinterpret my experiences as a white, Catholic, lesbian mom through lenses young adults can show me, and get a glimpse of what the future might be like for my daughters. I want these future leaders to know of my gratitude that they are committed to equality, and of my confidence in their path.
