CONGRATULATIONS to all of the lovely couples that are now legally recognized! It’s a historic and exciting day for the American public. I’m so proud to live in a country that has taken another step closer to giving equal rights to all of its citizens.
I know that there is still a ways to go for true equality for all citizens. We still have states that legally allow the firing of employees if they are open about being gay, public institutions that persecute transgender individuals, and politicians that are now working to revoke the court’s decision today; but we are still moving in the right direction.
So raise your glass to all the people that can now legally marry the person that they love! Raise your glass to the county clerks stay open so that they can! Raise your glass to the local businesses throwing parties/giving away free drinks/welcoming members of the community with open arms! Tonight is a night to celebrate!
