Thank you, SCOTUS. Today is a day I am proud of our nation and of those appointed to defend our rights. I sent Cam an absurdly sappy text where I quoted Justice Kennedy (something everyone should read if you haven't yet):
Today, my heart swelled with love. It makes me feel as though we are all truly free. Free, finally, to love who and how we want, and that we can add "liberty to love" to our inalienable rights.
Just one last anecdote before I go...
When I found out about the decision this morning I messaged a dear friend at work (who is gay). We had our little happy party via the intranet, and after lunch he stopped by my desk. I jumped up and gave him a hug and, with tears in his eyes, he said, "When I was little - growing up - I thought I'd always be in the closet. I never thought a time would come when I could be and express who I am. There is still a ways to go, but it's so much better than I ever thought it would be. And I got to live to see it."
Just typing that brought tears to my eyes. Love always wins.
