We were driving home from basketball camp one day last week when I decided to ask the kids a question.
I told them I wanted to know what they thought about a decision the Supreme Court had made the week before about gay marriage. We talked about how gay people had been fighting for equal rights for years, among them the right to get married, and that recently some states had come to recognize a legal marriage between gay people while others still considered it illegal and invalid.
So I asked what they thought of the Court’s decision that states can’t prevent same-sex couples from marrying and must recognize their unions as valid.
You know what T-man and Bear said?
I agree with them.
They should be able to get married.
It shouldn’t matter what sex you are. You should be able to marry who you love.
It’s the right thing to do.
And I’m not surprised at all. Because they are good, kind children who believe in what’s fair, and even the youngest child who is pure of heart can see that love is love.
If only more adults would listen to the children, maybe our world could be a better place for us all.
