It's personally meaningful, because I am bi and have many gay friends through my LGBT synagogue. But it's more than that.

First and foremost, it's just plain the right thing to do.

But also, being how we are, living the kinds of lives that we do, it is very important any time different ways of living and different ways of loving are validated.

PS - thank you, Canada, for all the ways you are more civilized than we are. I have a number of friends who went up north to get married.
