By the way, in case I forgot to mention it,

29 Jun

It is my hope that when my daughter is in high school, she looks back on this photo and groans;

not because she is embarrassed that she lived with a mother who dressed her up for rainbow colored photo opps,

but because she is embarrassed to have lived in a country where equality was, at one time, not a right, but a privilege,

and where love was not, in fact, all that one needed.

I hope that someday soon we all look back on this picture and groan,

at this victory, both enormous and minute,

as we remember a time when this country still had a lot of growing up to do.

So here’s to love, marriage, babies and equality for all,

and may peace be with you.
