Thats how I felt last week. There are thousands upon thousands of people who are invested and interested in the outcomes of the supreme court hearings last week and I am one of them. And sometimes it feels fruitless to fight against the thousands (millions?) of people whose minds are still closed and whose hearts have not yet seen that there is room in this world for all of us. But it makes a difference. The smallest gestures, they make a difference. If only to one person - but in my book that counts. It counts big.
So I wrote a little blog post about the power these laws (or lack there of) have over me and my marriage and it blew up. And people I didn't even know read it. And I hope that it changed a few minds and a few hearts. Maybe even just one.
But I can tell you one thing. It changed my life. Seeing all that red made a difference to me. It reminded me that there are people out there who are willing to fight for others. It reminded me that my life and my marriage count.
It reminded me that one person CAN make a difference.
So Thank You. No matter the outcome now or in 100 years (because I know love and kindness and truth and compassion - they always win) - It made a difference to me.
