The Supreme Court Ruling as Prosperity and Blessing
My day started with good news. The USA Supreme Court has approved same-sex marriage and hence paved the way for my wife and me to come to the USA as a married couple. This is something we have been waiting for. It lessens the strain of our being recognized as a legitimate couple in the USA when we apply for an extenuated visa or green card. It also reduces the immigration paper work and legal riggermarole.
I am also immensely glad that this political eventuality has come about because I am one of the many out black lesbians who helped fight for the cause by writing and publishing, marching, voting, advising, and standing up when the call came forth. During all of my 20s,30s,40s and 50s I participated in rallies and initiatives, and in the 1970s I had my first marriage in the Metropolitian Community Church of Long Beach,CA. Had it survived, our union would have been 40 years old and legitimate only now. I am not sorry for the end of that era or union(it taught me a lot about commitment and maturity), but I am happy that those who may have married back then as a spiritual ritual are now fully fledged. Be Blessed.

Again, blessing be on this day, and on the lives of all in the USA who have joined h
