Life as seen through my lens…

Watching the sun set on a world of inequality…

Today is a good day. The US Supreme court has acknowledged that the Federal government has no right to see a union between a same sex couple as different to a union between a mixed sex couple. Love is love, regardless of who that love is for.

I posted my feelings about this in a brief but appropriate message to Facebook earlier this morning, to which one of my old friends from the UK asked me “is there anything you want to tell us John?”

My response was this…

“For sure.. that I believe everyone should be treated the same, regardless of race, color, sex, or sexual orientation. Any law that enforces a difference in treatment is a law that we don’t need. Some of my best friends here are gay/lesbian. Why should my love for and commitment to my partner be recognised legally but theirs not be?”

With today’s ruling, I hope we truly are seeing the sun set on a world of inequality.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you
    could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

      To be honest I need to spend a lot more time here, but life keeps getting in the way. Thank you for your observations. Whenever I find the opportunity to re-do things here I’ll keep them in mind.
