Legalization of Gay Marriage Impacted Me The Most In 2015 {Challenge}
As @nicolejb stated in her amazing challenge card which you are check out right here (the video is amazing btw), a lot has happened in the past 12 months. The world feels totally different and yet day to day life still feels terribly usual.
Planned parenthood has been defunded, Trump has a good chance of winning the GOP nomination, transgendered peoples are finally coming to the forefront of the discussion, the refugee crisis is at an all time high, and so much more. And while there is a lot of scary, negatives to discuss, I can't help but focus on what I consider the most amazing moment of 2015.
I was sitting at work, June 26, 2015, when the news blasted over all social media forums.

Gay Marriage has finally been made legal in all 50 states.

It was 9:45 AM when I heard about it, and I burst into tears. Even now when I think about this moment I get emotional.
This means my best friends can get married. This means that millions of people everywhere can now love, truly love, their soul mate and not be penalized in the eyes of an unjust law. This means that finally, we are making strides to become a more tolerant, more loving country.

Because we grow up being told that love is the greatest thing one can ever find.

Love in family, love in children, and love in a soul mate that completes you better then anyone see can.
And on June 26th 2015, my best friends are now allowed to love whoever the fuck they want, in any state they want.
And I just love that.

I'm sorry guys.I do agree love is the greatest thing and respect human right but forbidden love by God? I still believe and fear in Sodom & Gomorrah story.
