9/11- Happy Anniversary to Us

Today is our Anniversary.

Our marriage is of the heart and mind and soul. It is not legal.

It occurred to me today though, that there will come a day when we can legally marry, right here in Georgia.

While it is so unbelievable that we can’t, that such a basic right would be denied, I feel very peaceful about it today.

The end of the lunacy is near. I can feel it.

Happy Anniversary Lee, my love. You are my every dream come true.

I love you more each day. Thank you for loving me.

  2. Happy Anniversary, you two. While you’re waiting for Georgia to catch up with the rest of the world, you can always come up here to Canada where same-sex marriage has been legal since 2005.

    This summer, Canada celebrated five years since same-sex marriages were granted legal status. Thought you might be interested in reading what was said in our federal Parliament to mark the anniversary:

    In our federal Parliament in Ottawa, Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff made the following statement on the fifth anniversary of the ‘Civil Marriage Act’:

    “Today marks a historic day in Canadian history and a proud and distinguishing moment for the Liberal Party of Canada. Five years ago today, Canada became the fourth country in the world to legalize marriage between persons of the same sex.

    “Following the Supreme Court of Canada’s December 9, 2004 favourable ruling on the constitutionality of marriage between same-sex couples, the final draft of the bill was introduced in the House of Commons by former Minister of Justice Irwin Cotler in Prime Minister Paul Martin’s Liberal government on February 1, 2005. Bill C-38 passed in the House of Commons on June 28, 2005, and in the Senate on July 19, 2005. It received Royal Assent the following day.

    “Today we reaffirm our belief that defending the rights of all people – not just those of the majority – is at the very soul of what it means to be a Canadian.”

    Amen to that!!

    I’m learning a lot from your blog – good work here.

    hugs,

    Carolyn
