A day to celebrate!

What a great day! I am so thrilled that my family, friends, colleagues, and the LGBT community finally have the option of legal marriage and the rights associated with it. Although I live in a state that does not generally reflect my political beliefs or social values, today’s Supreme Court decision makes me hopeful that gay marriage will no longer be an issue when my daughter is grown. Whatever sexual (and gender) orientation she ends up identifying as, I want her to know that she will have the same support and rights that I have had. There is a lot left to be done before we have true equality for all, but today was a big step in the right direction.
