equal dignity in the eyes of the law

"They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law," Justice Kennedy wrote of same-sex couples in the case. "The Constitution grants them that right."

It is so ordered...

"Why are you crying?" my kids asked as I read the final paragraph of Justice Anthony Kennedy's Opinion.

This gif may explain some of my feelings.

From Statutory Bans to Constitutional Bans... it all felt so hopeless. But so many brave and hopeful people fought on.

And H repeated his favorite Nelson Mandela quote to me:
"It always seems impossible until it is done."
It was a momentous day for civil rights. From this day forward there is no more gay marriage and straight marriage. Now, in America, there is just marriage. And that is awesome.

I knew I had to do something. Something to celebrate this awesome day... so I decided on glitter bombs and post it notes:  #LoveWins

Victor Hugo once remarked: “You can resist an invading army; you cannot resist an idea whose time has come.”
