The summer of loving

"We can finally trade "I do"s 
With whoever we may choose."

42 years ago the court case Loving v. Virginia decided that Americans could marry who they chose, regardless of race. 47 days later I was born.  Somewhat more than eight years ago, I married a wonderful woman who happened to be Korean.  Although not American, I am sure that court decision helped pave the way for the way I feel accepted today.

Far outside the normal bounds of this blog, a group of people, in the U.S. and elsewhere, are fighting for the right to get married now.  I think they should get it.
