same love

Dear SCOTUS,

Thank you. Thank you for doing the right thing. Thank you for validating existing marriages and families. Thank you for opening the door for future marriages and families. Thank you for standing for equality. Thank you for solidifying what so many of us already know: that love is love.

We still have so much work to do, but you helped pave the way for that with your ruling. You set the tone for us to continue our movement toward equality. You stood up for what's right today. I hope that leads even more of us to stand up for what is right tomorrow: same love.

Sincerely,
Me

As a native Californian, I could not be happier for this day if I were gay myself.

I weep every time I hear that Macklemore song.

"When everyone else
Is more comfortable
Remaining voiceless
Rather than fighting for humans
That have had their rights stolen
I might not be the same
But that's not important
No freedom til we're equal
Damn right I support it"

This video made me weep. What a beautiful, moving song. It is a life-changing day for so many, including a few very dear to me. I rejoice with them!

So awesome!! :)

When I first heard the news, I just HAD to tell someone. I ran out into the hallway and saw my office neighbor. With a gleam in my eye I said "they struck down DOMA!" She screamed and put her hands over her mouth and we both hugged and jumped and screamed. It was just so moving.
