There’s really one thing, ultimately, that’s making me happy this week.
The Supreme Court
I mean, do I really need to go on? Housing discrimination, the ACA, gay marriage… It’s been a good week for civil rights.
I’m giddy. I really didn’t know what to expect in any of these cases. The Court has been so conservative, so while I was hopeful, I was trying not to keep my hopes up.
But this week? This week humanity won. The world into which my daughter was born has become a little bit kinder, a little bit more compassionate, a little bit more open-minded. And that is what we ask of progress.
