I remember thinking as a child that it was so strange that my parents ever knew a time when black people had to sit at the back of a bus or couldn’t share a bathroom with whites. To me, it made my parents seem instantly old–part of a crazy, mixed up world.
These days, I always wonder if my daughters will think about equal rights finally being rolled out to the gay community and think to themselves how messed up their parents’ generation was for not having amended this inequality YEARS ago. I am proud that when they wake up this morning, another new page in history will have turned. Way to go, NY!!
