We can look for love all over this world of ours, but more often than not love finds us when and where we least expect it.
Perhaps that’s one of the reasons that yesterday, the Supreme Court affirmed marriage for everyone.
I give thanks for love wherever and whenever it blooms and to everyone who is swept away by its glorious, transforming power.
I couldn’t begin to express this more eloquently than Justice Kennedy. So I will let him inspire us:
“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”
