June 26th, 2015. This is one of those day where you’ll remember where you were and what you were doing. Today is the day the Supreme Court of the United States of America made marriage for us gay folk the law of the land. Today is the day the United States of America did indeed become a more perfect union.
I woke up around 10 am this morning and received a text message from my sister in law in TN with the photo you see in this post. I turned on the TV to see the news. I always believed marriage equality would happen, I just didn’t really hope to see it happen in my lifetime. Oh what a happy day!
The San Francisco Gay Pride Parade and festivities are set to take place tomorrow, June 27th, which also happens to be my birthday. I haven’t been to a Pride Day in years, and this one is sure to be spectacular and joyful. Don’t know if I’ll make it to the City, but my heart will be there.
Also on this day, the USWNT played and defeated China to become one of the final four teams to challenge for the 2015 Women’s World Cup.
Tomorrow I wake up to my 55th year, and to the beginning of a brand new world .. how wonderful is that!?
