A week that will change a lifetime

“Obama spreading the love”

What a remarkable week in the USA.

“Marriage” is finally legal, the abstract term of “gay marriage” can finally be exhausted including the purity of a social construct with due time. It’s finally time to accept the change that sweeps under us.

On a Friday, June 26, 2015 the U.S Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision, that the idea of love is not restricted to man and women, but a love between man and man, women and women, and a small but graceful step for the trans-gender community. Marriage is considered an ultimate union between two, and so begins the long needed acceptance of a social construct that love happens between same-sex couples.

However that’s not all for the U.S this week – a change even more crucially. No, fundamentally desired was the deteriorating symbol of the confederate flag. Honestly, for a symbol that fosters a historical era of the U.S. that defiantly stands for the unforgettable history of U.S. slavery. Less a flag but more a torch carrying on the long-lived indignation towards African-Americans in U.S. history.

Remember this day, this week, because it will not live in infamy but as a testament of the adversarial nature humankind is entitled to. Not all is bad and a gratifying change can happen.
