Last Friday I took the day off to spend time with my aunt and uncle visiting from California, and that morning was one of the highlights of the weekend when the Supreme Court issued a ruling declaring same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states.
We were able to take part in the celebration firsthand when we stopped by on our way home from one of the Smithsonian museums. I was overwhelmed with all of the (positive) emotions – love, joy, pride, etc. – and got choked up more than once while we weaved in and out of the crowds, exchanging high-fives and smiles with the many others who had also gathered. It’s funny how emotions can express themselves in a way that is opposite of what we would expect. Ever wonder why that happens?
