This week is the 40th anniversary of Loving vs. Virginia, the historic Supreme Court case from 1967 that removed prohibitions against interracial marriages. Yes, believe it or not, just 40 years ago it was ILLEGAL for people of different races to marry. Its hard for me to believe that 2 people in love were prevented from being married, simply because they were of different races.

It is my great hope that years from now we will celebrate a similar anniversary: the anniversary of gay marriage. Really, isn't it about the same thing? People in love who want to marry? 40 years ago it was 2 people in love but from different races. Today its 2 people in love who are the same sex. People are people, and they should ALL be able to marry and enjoy the same rights and responsibilities as any other couple.

If it can happen up here, it could happen there. Here's hoping.
