My parent's biracial marriage was actually illegal in several states when their union occurred. People's eyes widen in shock when I say that.
But many marriages of my dear friends were illegal in several states until yesterday.
I'm thrilled that both of those sentences will sound equally ridiculous to our children.
We are all so lucky to have witnessed & now to enjoy this major shift from fear into love.
In my series, Between Lions, sixteen-year-old Anna is discovering what happens when the seemingly indestructible, powers-that-have-been-&-assume-they-always-will-be, begin to crumble. Old ideas that no longer serve us fall away & old truths we've always known, deep inside our guts, resurface, demanding that we honor our highest selves.
This morning, scrolling thru my Facebook newsfeed, seeing picture after picture covered in rainbows - men & women, but also pictures of FAMILIES, as one of my friends pointed out today in her post - all showing their support & joyful celebration for love, freedom, & equality winning... an, OMG - TRUTH & LOVE REALLY DO WIN feeling burst through me.
Love changed the world yesterday.
I am so excited to see what we collectively create next in this brave, new, love-filled world.
