Us, living in LOVE!
Loving vs. Virginia ~ "There can be no doubt that restricting the freedom to marry solely because of racial classifications violates the central meaning of the equal protection clause."

I have been writing about the Loving's for many years (see story here: http://themanyshadesoflove.blogspot.com/2011/06/right-to-live-in-love.html) and they will forever hold a special place in my heart. Because of their courage, strength and most importantly, LOVE -- my husband and I, and so many others, have the right to marry and live our lives just like everyone else. The thing is, we ARE like everyone else. There is no difference between our love and any other love. We might look different on the outside, but as we all know, love comes from the heart...where everyone is the same. Love is love!!
A personal piece to the story is: my husband and I are honored to be part of the Glamour Magazine story about; The Loving's, interracial marriage, and the Loving movie. The Loving's made us possible and for that, we are forever grateful!
We chose love and love won...again!
