Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life. Leo Buscaglia
I have a complied a list of over 400 values/qualities with a plan to focus on one each week for this series, but how to choose?
This week’s post was easy – it was love based on The Supreme Court Ruling best said by the closing paragraph:
“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right. The judgment of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is reversed.”
It is so ordered.
- We clearly understand hatred and the harm it causes as evidenced in last week’s South Carolina shooting.
- We fail to understand when we deny people love, what they have to lose, which are the things we take for granted:
“This Fall we [my partner and I] will go to Disney World. It will be the first time that we travel out of state without having to bring Power of Attorney and Healthcare Proxy forms with us, in case anything happened to either of us. We had to do 2nd parent adoptions for our children, in case anything happened to either of us. We have had to do many things that everyone else takes for granted, all because of legislative action (or inaction as the case may be).“ Kris Conley
- We have to think what those who are opposed to gay marriage have to lose…Sorry, I can’t think of a single thing.
Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. Buddha
Thanks and have a great week!
