A Father’s Day letter to his gay son

The New York Times ran a piece today in the style section for Father’s Day.  It’s an incredibly emotional and personal piece about a father’s hopes for his gay son and the Prop 8 case.  Grab some Kleenex before reading this one.

I can’t excerpt this and do it justice, so I’ll just post the closing.

…One day soon, though, the powers that be are going to do the right thing. I’m his father, and it’s Father’s Day, so let me believe it. One day soon they’re going to let my brave, beautiful boy walk the same path we all get to take home.
