More than a thousand Utahns were at the Utah Capitol Friday to present a petition to Gov. Gary Herbert asking him to drop his appeal of a ruling that allowed for same-sex marriages in Utah.

Many people spoke at the event, but the speech from one young man in particular has captured attention online.

In this YouTube video, a young Utahn named Riley Hackford-Peer speaks about the issue and the marriage of his mothers, telling the governor that his family deserves protecting as much as any other family.
