America is a little better place today that it was just a few days ago. The Confederate flag is coming down (eventually) in public places, and everyone now has the right to marry (or not) whomever they choose. We are seeing slow but steady progress (except in Ky) on animal welfare issues. The Pope has even decreed that we must improve our treatment of animals and the environment. These changes don’t right all of society’s wrongs, but they’re a hell of a step in the right direction.
We still have much work to do. Terrorism, both domestic and foreign, continues to fester. Just surviving paycheck-to-paycheck remains the norm for much of the middle class and working poor. Some Christians seem to have forgotten the example of Jesus, whom the religion was founded upon.
However, just for today, let’s celebrate equality and victory. A victory for all!
