Sometimes life can be glorious. With all the depressing things our country has endured over the last few months, It’s hard not to get choked up with joy over the outpouring of good news that’s taken place over these past 2 weeks. Obamacare becomes the law of the land. The long overdue removal of the confederate flag, and drum roll please…the Supreme Court declares same-sex couples the right to marry in all 50 states.
I’m grateful that my LGBT friends and family are finally recognized by our country as the loving families and couples that they’ve always been.
I’m grateful that my son will feel free to choose love not based on what the government says, but what his heart says.
President Obama said it best, “Sometimes there are days like this, when that slow, steady effort is rewarded with justice that arrives like a thunderbolt”.
Tonight we celebrate what makes this country great with a sky full off thunderbolts. Happy 4th of July! – Jill Topol
