This is my dear friend, Leah. She was my mentor in grad school and she and her husband Wade fought valiantly in the state of Minnesota to defeat the marriage amendment. She attended gatherings, worked phone banks, and decked her lawn and her kids out with Vote No paraphernalia. And when the amendment was defeated, she posted a picture of my partner and me, stating it was one of the many reasons she was joyful that morning. I love her so much, and am so grateful for her presence in my life.—Chad
