It Just Feels Good All Over

The din from last week's Supreme Court decision on Human Rights seems to have diminished somewhat. Could it be that the haters have looked around and realized how many of their "friends" are on the other side of the fence?  Or maybe they see the world continuing to turn, the sun has not burned out, and life goes on--the same as it did before the Court recognized the rights of all citizens?  

I am in awe of the love that is oozing from people from all walks of life, all income levels, regardless of sexual orientation or preference. It feels good. 😋

I have long wanted to write more, but as many of us do, I 'don't really have the time' or 'I will get around to it later'.  Well, it's later.  One thing is certain, it is always gonna be later...we aren't getting any younger, and it feels truer today than ever before.

It's June 28, 2015, and we all know that June 26 will go down in the history books.  I have been so in touch with my gay friends, that I really didn't even think about the other side of the fence.  I must say, I am very disappointed by a few who have never shown me their hatred and stupidity the way Facebook and the Supreme Court ruling has given them the opportunity to show it now.  Of most concern, is those who are all for Freedom of Religion until we choose not to pick theirs.  I am happy, though, that I know who those few are now, and I can show appropriate sympathy for them in their diminished mental capacity.

On the other hand, I also have seen a side of some others that I wasn't sure existed.  I am referring to those friends (acquaintances ?) who may not agree with same sex marriage, but understand that the right to choose is an individual right, and not one to be dictated by anyone in our society.

Congratulations and best wishes for those friends who have taken this opportunity to announce or re-commit to their relationship/marriage/partnership.  I wish you all the best.  It's a better adjusted world than it was last week.  The fight is not over, but a major battle won.
