Today is the day. Let's not stop

What will happen today and tomorrow at the Supreme Court and at rallies around the nation?

I don't know. I am hopeful that we will prevail. I believe that we will prevail. I have certainly prayed over it a few times. Yes I prayed. No one group owns the patent on prayer and I suspect that I am not the first lgbt who has prayed over a decision which will affect his/her life.

 But this I do know.

We have come a long way and we ain't stopping now, regardless of what happens. We must never stop until full equality is ours.

We gay folks have taken every loss in peaceful stride. We will do so again. We cannot lose on "this" case -- for this is one of many to come -- if they rule against us now, like in Bowers ages ago, then we shall get a Lawrence to come soon for us. In a strange way, America likes underdogs -- and we are the most under of any dog that ever barked in this nation. We shall overcome, we shall prevail -- and not because of politics and law -- but because we shall turn to our families, friends and coworkers, and they will change their minds. For that's what the entire gay debate has been since the 1950s -- changing people's minds. In the president's word: "Evolving."
Yes, the nation is evolving; alas, the impossible takes a little longer.

You are right, though, there is no going back. We are like toothpaste out of the tube -- there's no putting us back in. It'll take another 20 years, but well, the light is on at the end of the tunnel. I can't worry.
