Quotes

Page 2 of 3 - "My first trip after my husband died was to the east coast to Maine because I am interested in light houses," she said. "I have been as far west as Phoenix, Ariz. We lived in Texas during World War II. I boarded the train with two kids who weren't in school yet. I don't think I slept all the way there. Carol wasn't talking yet and Marjorie was singing and entertaining those on the train. It was hard traveling to Texas since I had never been out of the state of Illinois before. My husband was in service. I took two suitcases and was scared to death to even think about it. The war years were scary. My husband was trained as a gunner but never went overseas. We were living on $100 a month with two kids; half of it went for rent."
...21, 1996 - President Bill Clinton signs the Defense of Marriage Act banning federal recognition of same-sex marriage and defining marriage as "a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife."
