This morning I cried tears of relief as my precious child slept unknowing beside me. This girl will not remember a time that the law didn't protect her right to marry the one she loves with no restrictions on race or gender. She will grow up knowing that love is love. She will wonder how it was ever a question. She will love and be loved. Today I wept because this world is complicated and imperfect and as a parent I am often worried about how to effectively explain sadness, bigotry, and hatred to my children, but today I have one delightful thing to celebrate, one truth to stand in. Today love is love and that is the law of the land.
