There are smaller wars going on in the world today that people don't even realize may cause more harm to innocent lives then to those of our nations enemies. The main war going on is the one on gay recognition. There is much talk about this topic, especially on the lives that were taken because of a lifestyle choice that some people couldn't control. Acceptance is what most people are afraid of but also opinions of the another persons point of view is really what they can't accept. If we could find a way to give un-biased rights to everyone so that everyone can have it their way, we can be one step closer to ending a war.

And finally there can be peace in this topic just like there is peace nowadays on the color of peoples skin. Same-sex couples will finally get to lifestyle even trying to achieve, the protagonist can file sense of achievement and people won't look at them like evil people. I will also bring peace towards the Catholic Church on people's perception of gay being hated when reality they're loved and excepted by Christians because they're just like any other person and should not feel like they are hated. Now the choice is up to you. Do you want this war to go on into your child generation or do you want to adopt a policy that could finally bring peace to everyone and maybe make the world and safer place to live in?
