Midwesterners Sending Flowers to SF Newlyweds

The flowering of love
Strangers from Midwest send bouquets

Saturday, February 21, 2004

Robert Yamaguchi and Raymond Mungo were waiting outside City Hall in the cold early Friday morning when a florist clutching wedding bouquets handed them one. The outside of the accompanying envelope read, "To The Happy Couple, " and the card tucked inside said simply, "With love from Minneapolis, Minnesota."

The men -- who have been together for 23 years and flew up from Long Beach to make it official -- were stunned by the anonymous gift of red roses, irises, lilies and white Gerber daisies.

"Oh, my heart just burst with joy when he handed up those flowers!" Mungo exclaimed as Yamaguchi carried them in his arm like a beauty contest winner. "Some stranger who doesn't even know us is helping celebrate the event -- it's very touching."

The couple's gift has been replicated hundreds of times throughout the week as part of a grassroots movement called Flowers in the Heartland.

Flowers

I think this is such a wonderful idea! It really is a nice counterpoint to those idiot fundies who've started to protest the weddings.

1. Love always prevails over hate, eventually.

2. Yop! Instead of the moral fabric of the country
falling apart at the seams, love and kindness is breaking out. The only thing that seams to be able to curdle the milk of human kindness is right wing frakazoid bitterness.
