LGBT Equality Day
During the past two decades, the Supreme Court has issued three landmark rulings on June 26th that helped curtail LGBTQ discrimination, affirm the dignity of same-sex couples and move our country toward a more perfect union:
1. Lawrence v. Texas (June 26, 2003), in which the Court ruled that states could no longer criminalize the private conduct of same-sex couples. This ruling invalidated over a dozen discriminatory state laws.
2. United States v. Windsor (June 26, 2013), in which the Court ruled that same-sex couples who were legally married in their state have the right to the benefits and protections provided by marriage under federal law.
3. Obergefell v. Hodges (June 26, 2015), in which the Court ruled that same-sex couples had the constitutional right to legally marry, ending marriage discrimination and validating same-sex relationships nationwide.

“Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.” - Marianne Williamson
Whether it’s a close friend, family member, old neighbor, new classmate, parent, child, or anybody else in your life, if you know anyone who is lonely or going through a tough time, surprise them today with a visit, a hug, or organize a get-together to help get the word out and spread the spirit of friendliness! Loneliness can be caused by health issues, financial troubles, or grief from loss, and it can be very overwhelming. This day serves as a reminder to all of us that everyone needs a little extra love and attention, especially the lonely. A small act of kindness can make a big difference. Use this day to also express gratitude to anyone who’s ever reached out to you while you when struggling.
