    re: gay people who were murdered...and the holocaust memorial with the same sex simple & yet so effective to get the point across

    and I also stared at the picture that you choose to depict the memorial.....I couldn't get my eyes away, thinking what they would be treated like at that time..even with the black nail polish, no less that fabulous colored hurts me ,because it's STILL happening ...that kind of hatred ,maybe not in that degree but it's still here & wait till the marriage vows become legalized...things will get alot worse before they get better...many "sacrificial lambs" will be had and another memorial to be built
