Love Wins!

I was wanting to write something eloquent and profound about yesterday’s landmark victory for the United States, but no words could even come close to Justice Anthony Kennedy’s final paragraph which reads:

No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.

Congratulations friends and neighbours! This is truly a time to celebrate!

I’m so proud and happy for my friends, family, and all others who will directly benefit from this ruling. And to all of us who have witnessed this historic moment, this shift from hope to reality, let this be a reminder that love truly does conquer all. Love wins.
