On Friday June 26th, the Supreme Court of United States ruled same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry, a landmark decision that sweeps away state bans on gay unions in 13 states. Yesterday, marriage equality became a law of the American land, and with that the world became a little better place to live. To learn more about the history of the LGBT movement in America and this historic win read this, this, and this.
I am writing this post so that when I grow old I can look back to my journal entries and remember that I was here in the US to witness this historic decision, and also as a reminder that there’s still hope; that things will continue to change, and equality and justice will continue be served to the people of all races, religions, and nations.
We are celebrating this great occasion with a rainbow frozen yogurt shake. Leave a comment and tell us how you are celebrating. 🙂
