Here is one of my favorite posts from the past ten years, written on June 27, 2015:
When I think about Friday’s historical Supreme Court ruling that same-sex marriage is to be recognized and accepted nationwide, I think about how great it is to be alive at this moment. This is like my generation’s Walk on the Moon or Roe v. Wade, only better.
It’s better because now EVERYONE can get married. NOBODY has to live a lie any longer. EVERYONE can benefit from LOVE.
I think the statement that Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote sums it up best:
“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than they once were.”
Congratulations to all the happy couples out there and congratulations to the Supreme Court of the United States of America for getting it right.
Love really does win.
