EvolveAlreadyVideo.jpgGetEqual created a powerful video based on Joe Sudbay's #EvolveAlready campaign that's taken Twitter by storm.

GetEqual started a list -- reasons for @BarackObama to #EvolveAlready on marriage equality. If you tweet your reason to GetEqual on twitter, it will blast yours to its list, including @BarackObama. It took some of the top reasons already tweeted, pictures sent in by couples, and Brandi Carlile's song "The Story." It's totally moving, and I'm so proud of our community. I admit to weeping a bit.

Also, Carlile's lyrics are awesome (see below). So tweet your reason for President Obama to #EvolveAlready to GetEqual! Wouldn't it be great if he got a million tweets saying #EvolveAlready?

The Story

Brandi Carlile

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am

But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true, I was made for you

I climbed across the mountaintops
Travel across the ocean blue
I cross over lines and I broke all the rules
And baby I broke them all for you

Oh because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
You do, I was made for you

You see the smile that's on my mouth
It's hiding the words that don't come out
All of the friends who think that I'm blessed
They don't know I'm in this mess

No they don't know who I really am
And they don't know what I've been through
Like you do, and I was made for you

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am

Oh but these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true, I was made for you
Oh yeah, and it's true that I was made for you.
