Marriage Happens

Overwhelmed. Goose bumps. Tears. Lots and lots of tears.

I'm frankly too spent and have no more words to describe what an amazing day this has been. All of our city commission and mayor, and the majority of the county commission stood in the entrance of the Leon County Clerk of Courts office to greet us, the LGBTQI community seeking marriage licenses for the first time in Florida history.

It was joyous. And a wonderful counterbalance to today's other activity; the inauguration of the people who have been fighting us every step of the way.

But today wasn't about them; it was about us. This is the day that Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

Nice gesture by the poobahs, bowing to the inevitable. Can Georgia be far behind? ("Yes, it can," she said with a wry smile.)

I'm convinced that if Florida can have marriage equality, then it is really inevitable for ALL the states. Seriously, these jokers did everything they could to prevent this day from dawning in Florida. I hope history makes them ashamed of themselves.
