In 1980 two people I know met and fell in love. They are extraordinary people with deep values. They are honest, kind, compassionate, love animals and work each day to make the world and the lives of other people better. Because of their shared values and common goals they have been together happily for 33 years. And for 33 years they have waited for the day they could get married.
Today my friend told me they are planning the ceremony. He shared that there is a picture of a flying pig on the invitation. He said, “I know it is a strange thing to have on a wedding invitation but we thought we would get married only when pigs could fly.”
I am so happy for my friends. I am pleased that two very good men are finally getting to realize their dream. I am happy that we are learning to accept love in all of its forms. I am happy that pigs have learned to fly.
