Classroom discussion morphs into larger-than-expected rally supporting gay marriage

”We were in class on Monday and started talking about how all you see are the ‘Yes on Prop 8’ signs and we noticed how wrong that was and organized this. We just thought eight students were going to show up but almost 90 people are here…. I’m a Republican and I’m straight but I still think we shouldn’t be overruling something that out government already voted ‘yes’ on so we shouldn’t take something away already granted.”

Natalie Compton, a Clovis High School senior from Northwest Fresno, CA. (KMPH)
