“Star light, star bright, The first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might, Have the wish I wish tonight.”
I remember reciting this simple prayer often as a child – I think it is the first prayer most children learn. Remarkably enough, it is the prayer I am again repeating today on the eve of what will hopefully, finally be the REPEAL of DOMA by The Supreme Court of the United States tomorrow morning at 10AM. I have posted many, many times about why I feel that DOMA should be repealed but in a nutshell, I believe two adults that love one another deserve the right to be together. No one should be allowed to “legislate” whom or how any one loves, and I am PRAYING with all my heart that those nine judges will put aside personal belief, prejudice or bias and simply see that a law that prohibits love between two people is wrong.
I often joke with friends and loved ones that I rarely ask The Universe for any favors. So, when I DO ask, I like to think The Universe listens.
I am asking… Please let the justices see the right answer. Please let them repeal DOMA.
