Ladies and Gentlemen, on June 26th 2015, the Supreme court had come to the conclusion that gay marriage would be legal throughout the United States of America with a vote of 5-4. This would overturn the fourteen states that had originally declined homosexual couples from the right of marriage. Throughout the country, the sounds of cheer filled the air as couples, young and old were given the rights that they were declined for so long. Though, this is only a stepping stone for true equality. While this vote allows couples to be married, it still does not protect against discrimination in either the work or social environment. One can only hope that this is just the beginning of a much needed change.
My personal thoughts, all I have to say is this; It doesn’t matter if you are straight, gay, bisexual, transsexual, or pan-sexual, love is love. Right now, I can only imagine that Harvey Milk is looking down at us with a smile across his face when he sees how far we have come. A person should have the right to be with the one they love, and there is no force on earth that should prohibit that, neither man or government. To the naysayers who say that marriage should be kept between a man and a woman, I have one thing to tell you. If thinking that two people should be allowed to marry is wrong, then I don’t want to be right.
