“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 greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in this case demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say that they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”
— SCOTUS Majority Opinion by Justice Anthony Kennedy, Obergefell v. Hodges
Today is a damn good day.
It’s a good day because Holly and I are going to Seattle tonight to celebrate Seattle Pride. It’s a good day because I woke up to a text message from my future sister in law: “Woohoo!!!” It’s a good day because my Facebook feed is turning into one big rainbow. It’s a good day because the WordPress menu bar at the top of my screen is rainbow. It’s a good day because my brother sent me these photos he took.
It’s a good day because the President made me cry.
Today’s just a good day.
