In case you have been living under a rock over the past weekend, the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision in Obergefell vs. Hodges made same-sex marriage legal nation wide on Friday! That means that states cannot keep same-sex couples from marrying and must recognize their unions. Finally, marriage equality under the law! Love won in a big way! And it was a beyond beautiful thing! It was a momentous day in our nation’s history and an even more important day for civil rights, one that will be written about in history books for years to come.
I was watching CNN as the decision came down from the court and, I have to admit, I couldn’t help myself from getting my ugly cry on as the crowd singing the national anthem hit the ‘…land of the free’ line. Whew, talk about a long time coming! I went to sleep that night with a profound lightness and great joy in my heart, knowing that with love and equality for all, there is nothing we can’t do!
So, now, that we are all finally equal when it comes to marriage, can I make the suggestion that we stop calling it ‘gay marriage’ and just call it all ‘marriage’ across the board? Kay, thanks! #lovewins
