I just wanted to take a moment to acknowledge and celebrate the first same-sex couple to get legally married in Connecticut. According to The Boston Globe, "They said their vows holding hands, standing before a memorial to the 1839 Amistad slave revolt. Carved in its base were the words: 'Make Us Free.'"
Proposition 8 in California was so heart-wrenching. At least there's a glimmer of hope on the other side of the country.
Way to go, Connecticut!
