"Can we all just get along?" – Rodney King

The Supreme Court's ruling allowing marriage between two people of the same sex is a good thing. There are many people in the US that do not agree with me. Am hoping everyone will remember that the United States of America is based on freedom. We are supposed to have the freedom of religion, that means that if your religion dictates that marriage can only be between a man and a woman, then so be it. You need to be yourself and it is up to me to accept you as you.

There are limits to this freedom. Freedom does not include anyone's right to dictate someone else's life or manner in which they live. It also places a responsibility on each of us, that we respect those that have different opinions and life styles than our own.

Please, when someone presents you with a view that is different from your own, pause. Take a moment and try to see the world through their eyes. Each of us has our reasons why we think the way we do. If you feel they need to change, then you need to learn more about them.

The United States is big enough for all of us.
