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. 🙂

This looks interesting. Hows Greek yogurt different from regular yogurt?
It’s just much thicker than regular yogurt with less water content. You can also use hung yogurt for the same result.
