    "Just outside the frame of the video, I am rocking my 3-month-old daughter with my foot while we play. I am taking a stand against Amendment One because I want Nora to learn that the best weapons with which to fight intolerance and fear are beauty and generosity of spirit." --Karen Strittmatter Galvin

    "Working in the Arts has opened my eyes and torn down walls. The people I love come in all shapes, sizes, colors, ethnicities, and sexual orientations. I am happy to do my part to ensure ALL North Carolinians can live their life as they please and be happy. I am thankful to have such talented friends and honored to play a small role in making my state a better place to live." --James Travis Creed

    Lyrics:
    Stranger there across the room
    Your children are my children too
    When seven days of May are done
    I’ll vote against amendment one

    Father one or fathers two
    Your family is my family too
    Ties that bind won’t be undone
    We’ll vote against amendment one

    Love thy neighbor, word and true
    Your neighbor is my neighbor too
    To work beside and lean upon
    And vote against amendment one

    Points of light and points of view
    Your city is my city too
    The crumbling walls we’ll overrun
    To vote against amendment one

    We cannot see for red or blue
    But your state it is my state too
    And when the 8th of May is come
    We’ll vote against amendment one
    We’ll rise up with the morning sun
    And vote against amendment one
    The sounding cry has just begun
    We’ll vote against amendment one
