Victories

Yesterday I turned 30. Today the Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality. 

I had a wonderful birthday, but today’s ruling makes me happier than a million birthdays. This is a victory for our country. It’s not just about weddings; it’s about hospital visitation rights, last wishes, custody, and many, many other important rights. 

I’m overjoyed that as I enter my next decade, we’re that much better.
