/departing from travel talk/
I’ve seen a bunch of posts from my fellow blogger today about the landmark same-sex marriage ruling the Supreme Court released today. They’ve all summarized the issue at hand well. I wasn’t going to write about it myself because I thought it was well covered, but I had an interesting conversation with a friend/co-worker today about it.
The gist of it is that my daughter and son (9 years old and 4) will grow up in a world where they’ll talk about the time when same-sex marriage wasn’t legal. It makes me think of my parent’s generation, who lived through segregation and ultimately the removal of (most of) those barriers. And, it makes me think that I never questioned a black person in my school because they were another person, not a separate class of society.
I understand not everyone agrees with the ruling. Some folks I know and love are vehemently opposed.
But, as I said in the car today, I’m happy my children won’t have those barriers. We have enough man-made barriers to equality already.
It seemed fitting to close with this American Airlines pic, especially given some of the flack they received when they changed their Twitter avatar recently to celebrate Pride Month.
