When I signed into my WordPress account to write tonight, I found it bordered with a rainbow. Appropriate for my blog tonight.
Yesterday, I was watching television on my first day off of summer break, when The Supreme Court ruled that the U.S. Constitution provide same-sex couples the right to marry. I was home alone and burst out clapping and cheering! A victory for so many people who have been fighting for so long!
Minutes later Facebook “exploded” with rainbows and quotes about love. Last night all over The USA, landmarks were lit in the colors of the rainbow. I am so proud of our country right now.
Later in the day, President Obama declared,”If we are truly created equal than truly the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.”
I know there will be people out there who don’t agree with the ruling and everyone is entitled to their opinion. Tonight though, an old friend from high-school shared this, which is written on the wall of The Jefferson Memorial.
Change is good. Change is important.
