2.) I agree! its awesome and i have said the same. Even though I myself am not gay there was a time I thought id never see equal rights for my fellow HUMANS and AMERICANS in my lifetime. I thought only my daughter would be lucky enough to see it.
I cant imagine how they feel and its great to see discrimination slowly losing. Being witness to something so important is just amazing.
IM very happy for them and god bless them.
