In My Lifetime - Should've Been in Yours

Today Marriage Equality became the law in this country. We talked about this often & wondered if we'd see it happen in our lifetimes. I remember at one point I told you I might not see it in mine, but I thought you would in yours. How sad it is to me that you missed it.

I'm emotional today, but I'm not sure if it's because I'm happy for the change or sad because you didn't live to see it, but really, it's more likely that it's a bit of both. It makes me wonder how many more things will happen in the years I have left that should be happy, but will be bittersweet to me. It's not fair, Erin. You should be here, celebrating one less injustice in this world, but you aren't.
