People around the country are in celebration mode and I couldn't be happier. Of course, as a civil marriage celebrant I relish in the idea of being able to perform same sex weddings but it's much more than that. What I am truly happy about is the acceptance and validation that this legislation brings with it. Marriage equality is one part of a much bigger picture. For my family and friends who have not been afforded the same rights as the rest of us I am truly happy. For all those around the country who have felt the brunt of the process, I am sorry and I really hope that the passing of this legislation begins the healing process. For all those who belong to the LGBTQI community I send my love and best wishes for a brighter future, not only for you but for the generations to come!
