I have to admit, this morning while reading the Supreme Court's decision on same-sex marriage, my eyes teared up a little. All things considered, this is a major step toward mainstream America rightfully accepting members of the gay and lesbian community as equals in our society instead of treating them like second-class citizens.

Just considering the all people whom this decision directly affects, individuals who have probably lived most of their lives being told that the love they feel for their partner is wrong or inferior compared to that felt between heterosexual couples, and in some cases even informed that their marriage would somehow signify the desecration of marriage as a whole, I can't help but feel moved to emotion by their plight and willingness to struggle forward.

From one human being to another, that's just how I feel.

It's a good day.
