In light of recent events in North Carolina, sharing these sentiments with everyone I know seems particularly important. One more state has confirmed the definition of marriage as a union only between a man and a woman. One more state has denied a whole portion of American citizens civil rights and equality under the law.
Marriage under the law, rather, should be more generally defined as a union between two people who are deeply committed to each other. Love should know no boundaries. Laws in the United States should be gender-blind.
