Letter: Court’s decision shows true American values

Rachel Herron


To the editor:

This past week was full of celebration as the Supreme Court decided to move our country towards basic civil and human rights. Instead of fearing dissenting, outdated opinions of traditions and morals our country has chosen to follow the path of what I believe it means to be a true American.

I love our country and the melting pot from which it sprang. People came to America in search of freedom from persecution and seeking acceptance. My ancestors made the voyage to find better lives, and our continuing struggle to accept people for who they are shows me that we are continuing to embrace what makes us unique.

Not so many years ago our country was in another battle for civil rights and the war for equality was won. We continue to progress with our ideas and I am proud. My partner of many years and I have chosen not to marry until everyone in our country receives the same basic human right.
