June 26, 2013 "Thea and Edie" Day
Today is a day of joy - DOMA is Unconstitutional! The Federal Government may not exclude American same-sex couples from the Federal Rights and Privileges due married heterosexual couples.
Never in my life did I think I would live to see a day like today.
But grant yourself a moment of silence - send your positive thoughts and love to Edie Windsor. Edie Windsor refused to be treated as a second class citizen. Send all the more love to the memory of her beloved Thea Spyer, whose death and estate tax matters subsequently set these wheels in motion. Blessing to you Edie on this momentous day, and hugs because you can't share it with her in person.
This isn't the end, just the beginning of overturning marriage amendments in those states that don't view marriage equality as a basic human right.
