This week’s quote isn’t so much a quote as it is a simple statement. A fact. The fact that love is love, no matter what color or gender you are.
As of this past Friday, the Supreme Court here in the U.S. has legalized gay marriage nationwide by ruling that the U.S. Constitution bars states from denying marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Love is one of the most powerful emotions in the world. It causes us to do incredible – and often crazy – things. But the fact that we have the capability of feeling such a wonderful, powerful, crippling emotion is incredible. It’s a plain and simple fact that everyone is capable of love. No matter what color you are, no matter what gender you are, no matter what your sexual orientation is.
I raise my glass to everyone that has been fighting this fight, everyone that has had to or will face discrimination simply because of the person they love. You have a kind of courage that not many of us can say that we have. Even I will never know what it is to be hated and looked down upon for the color of my skin or the person I love. I am happy for all of you, and I hope that this is a stepping stone to better times.
