Duncan McAlpine Sennett, the 13-year-old in this video, gave the traditional religious speech — I've learned this is called a d'var Torah — at his bar mitzvah. I've also learned that the purpose of the d'var Torah is to relate biblical text to the person's life and passions. Well, Duncan's life and passions inspire me and give me hope. How about you?
I think Duncan is pretty awesome. And like him, I also think it would be great to see Oregon get on board the marriage equality train. If you agree, you can share by hitting the the Facebook and Twitter buttons below.
