More on Endings, Beginnings and Anniversaries

June 25, 2011


Sixteen years ago, I carried Grandma’s peonies in my wedding to DH.  Our choice to marry one another was the best decision we ever made.

I had always taken for granted our right to choose one another, and to marry in the time and place we also chose.

Just last night, Representatives of the citizens of the State of New York made history and created a more just society.  They represented the wishes of the people of New York state, voting that all New Yorkers have the right to marry in the time and place of their choosing.  I was overjoyed for my friends, for my state, and for the generations to come.

I am glad for that ending, this new beginning, and for the many happy anniversaries that lie ahead  — for all of us.
