Refreshing “Must See” Video

Last night New Zealand’s Parliament passed legislation legalizing gay marriage.  This video shows what happened next.  The entire Parliament and spectators burst into song, singing “Pokarekare Ana,” a love song in the language of New Zealand’s inidgenous Maori people.  The woman in the video wearing the rainbow shirt is Louisa Wall, a lesbian lawmaker who sponsored the legislation.
Can you imagine the U.S. Congress breaking into song about anything, much less the passage of legislation to give people long-deserved equal rights?  Always thought New Zealand was a beautiful country.

It will make you feel good.
