Hello My Little Doves!
Iona Uradreams here with My Media Muse reporting to you from My Pink Settee. Gather Round little doves, todays Tale and Whisper no longer remain a Whisper or a Tale. Yes that's right, today marks the first day in History, all 50 States Recognize Same Sex Marriage.
Below the Supreme Court is swarmed with friends and family celebrating the long awaited ruling.
After years of protests for and against Marriage equality, tears and frankly all that paperwork... Marriage Equality rings true in all 50 States with people rejoicing in excitement after 45 years of legal battles are over. Not only is Marriage legal but it sets the precedent in the Supreme Courts over religious-freedom and non-discrimination legislation.
One thing that stuck out to me in the ruling was a eloquently put description of Marriage that not only sums it up, but makes us feel hope as we read it:
"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." Justice Anthony Kennedy.
To all my Little Doves Iona Uradreams here with My Media Muse from My Pink Settee, May my Whispers and Tales be with you in all your adventures.
