Hey United States let's Catch Up!!

As Most of my Readers know I hardly ever get political on my blog.. But I saw this on the 
Heartul Musings Blog which is written by Tracy Verdugo

I was very touched..

Here is what she posted to go along with this Video

I whole heartily agree with the Parliment of New Zealand.

"As the Parliament of New Zealand passed a bill to allow equal marriage in the country, those in attendance of the reading broke into song, once it was announced that it had passed.
The video posted by the Parliamentary TV service, sees the speaker of the house announce the results of the reading, which saw 70 votes for and 44 against, before cheers from the crowd.
Someone in the public gallery then calls out, before an emotional pause, and the song Pokarekare Ana, a traditional love song, written in 1917, and considered by some an unofficial National Anthem.
The Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill introduced equal marriage for all regardless of sex, sexual orientation or gender identity."

"New Zealand is the 13th country in the world to legalise equal marriage.
It is legal in the following countries: Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Iceland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Uruguay."

  1. Very interesting to see this... being a kiwi it's always good to hear news like this from my old home land. Absolutely ghastly accents though... makes me cringe.... I don't sound quite like that anymore (I promise!) C x
