Same-sex marriage. Equality across a nation today. My thoughts

A day cemented in the history books my friends. The chatter is loud out there in social media. A chatter that can be viewed as a bit of shouting from both sides of this virtual “wall” that has been officially torn down.

“Equal dignity in the eyes of the law”

I had a lot to say about this topic. I really did. I wanted to perseverate on my personal feelings, my history in the military, my non-religious up-bringing and how many ‘gay’ people I know, and how many ‘gay’ people I’ve known in my short time on this earth to be such genuine souls.

But I’ve decided to keep in short and simple. Here’s the one thought I have on the equality of marriage.

How would have my life been for the past ten years, had I been told, by the law, that I could not marry my best friend, I could marry my soul mate? That in the eyes of the law, you’re love is not recognized.

The answer is quite simple. I would have a very different life.

And now those who have had to lead that ‘different’ life, get a chance to express themselves properly in the eyes of the law.

Game. Set. Match my friends.

It’s really that simple. Love is universal. Don’t make it any more complicated than it has to be. Hate begets hate, don’t forget that.

Friday Fun Fact

200H

Millennials, or those born from 1982 through 2000, now make up more than a quarter of the U.S. population, exceeding Baby Boomers (1946-1964) for the first time.

-from U.S Census Bureau

This fun fact is an eye-opener in regards to population behavior and the paradigm shift in social habits, the market and of course just good ole’ fashion relationships. I mean you have noticed there are some changes goin’ on with how we as humans interact with each other haven’t you?

Things that make you go hmmm.
