Living Civil Rights in the Age of Obama

I am happy that President Obama has made a statement confirming his support for marriage equality. I have long been disappointed in the denial of the civil right to a legal union for same-sex couples in the United States. Being gay in America should not place you outside of citizenship. I am proud of the President for making this stand today. Like so many others, I believe that his support makes a powerful statement and that it gives some hope to children who struggle with being able to claim who they are for fear of being ostracized. Perhaps the President widened the circle of inclusion today.
