Marriage Equality! It's real!
Ecstatic is not a large enough, nor emotionally encompassing enough, to describe the rush of thoughts and feelings that have washed over me today. SCOTUS finally announced their decision and upheld that Marriage is a constitutional right afforded to every human being, regardless of who they love. This is a monumental step in the right direction. While there are many more battles on the horizon related to social justice and civil rights - this huge moment is breathtaking in it's enactment.
My words continue to escape me and all I am left with is happy tears... so I will simply republish thoughts of others who speak on a much more sophisticated and eloquent level than I.
"In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say 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."
