"Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood has joined a large group of Republicans arguing for same-sex marriage in the US Supreme Court. Prominent conservatives and many of the largest US corporations now favor gay marriage as well."  (Christian Science Monitor)

One day it'll all seem a bit silly that we had to fight for equal rights. One day soon, I hope.

Republicans used the politics of fear to turn marriage equality into a wedge issue in so many previous elections.

Today it looks like many Republicans including Clint Eastwood are for the first time publicly pro-gay, pro-equality, pro-marriage for all!  It's moments like this that keep me energized with hope that my state and my nation will "one day" recognizing my marriage.

I have hope.

And just like Andy told Red in The Shawshank Redemption: "Remember, Red. Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies."
