Love Wins!

Today an event shook the foundations of bigotry and ignorance.  Same sex marriage has been legalized in all 50 states of the United States of America by the US Supreme Court.

Read the full text of Obergefell vs. Hodges to fully appreciate the 103-page decision including lengthy dissents especially from Justice Scalia.

The dispositive part of the decision will be perpetuated as a major highlight on the timeline of humanity.

SCOTUS opinion on same sex marriage

The U.S. is now the 21st country to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide, including territories. Married same-sex couples will now enjoy the same legal rights and benefits as married heterosexual couples nationwide and will be recognized on official documents such as birth and death certificates. - from CNN

Drink this all in because finally the world is moving forward from boxed mentalities.  Although I do not expect all continents to follow suit, it gives me hope that the citizens of the world will soon divest themselves of something as divisive as hate from ignorance.

At least now, those who envelope themselves in a blanket of their choosing, are shown there is acceptance amidst difference; that love in all its form will permeate all barriers; that every person capable of love will - at all cost- allow love to win.

Celebrate Pride and show it to the world!
