TODAY MY HEART IS BEAMING!

The day is here at last. Marriage equality for all! Now my dads can get married anywhere they want to and that’s the greatest sentence I’ve ever written!

Here’s a quote from my dad, the bravest, truest human being I’ve ever known.

“Today is a big day for LGBT people in America. Having the right to legally marry and to have that marriage recognized in all 50 states is huge and landmark. I have been fortunate that I have experienced very little discrimination in my life and my children and family have been loving and supportive. I am fortunate to have a normal life with a long term partner. The 5-4 ruling today make us all equal as it should be. Love is love.”

I was at work when I found out this magnificent news. I immediately called my dad, but he didn’t answer. Then I ran over to the office of one of my favorite co-workers who is a proud gay man. I found him ugly crying at a TV and I ran up and hugged him and started crying too. We jumped up and down with excitement right as my dad called me back and we shared our excitement over the phone. He lives in Las Vegas and I’m in Chicago so a virtual hug was the best we could do. There was magic in the air. 🙂

Remember where you were today, because this moment will go down in history.

What an amazing time to be alive.

“It is so ordered.”
