Today, even before the Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage is legal throughout the United States, equality always mattered. It took courage to rule against the Constitution, but in reality, it took courage to actually accept the reality that love is love. This day in history is remarkable and well deserved to the same-sex couples and LGBT community that has rallied and advocated for their right to marry for decades. Love doesn't discriminate and as of today, neither does the law.
About time right?
Knowingly, not everyone agrees with today's reality but that is okay. Disagreement and displeasure is how we express our opinions, expand our ideas and most importantly how we share our differences. We're growing as a Country, but we still have more to do. As long as we continue doing the right thing, there is no reason we cannot continue fighting for equal rights and justice where due. In other words, equality is the right thing to do and the right way for us as people, community and Government to advance as one.
Sincerely, thank you to all the advocates and supporters of marriage equality. Advocating for love is just as beautiful as you are as people, advocates and couples. Congratulations to all you love birds, the LGBT community and the country of the United States. We are one and today proves that.
