And it wasn't just the White House
This was truly a monumental week for Goodness, Compassion, Love and simply Doing The Right Thing! Between The Supreme Court holding up the Affordable Care Act and now Gay Marriage it is truly astonishing! Then when Obama sang Amazing Grace, I cried tears of joy and felt part of a great, rainbow community of Love. Today, I am proud of Obama and those justices of the Court who understand that equality means equal and is an integral part of " the pursuit of happiness". I also bow to all those brave activists who fought for years and once again I am hopeful for the future. Let's celebrate!
It seems like there has been just too much NEWS this week. I cannot imagine what it must be like for a president to be in the middle of so much of it. I think that makes President Obama's speech/eulogy/sermon in Charleston today that much more amazing/inspiring/provocative. In the midst of all the craziness and pettiness, he delivered today one of the most thoughtful and moving speeches ever given by a president. We are fortunate to have him in The White House.
Wow, history moves fast,” Colbert said. “It’s hard to believes that gays achieved full constitutional personhood just five years after corporations did.”
