Thank You President Obama

Dear President Obama:

Thank you for your recent announcement articulating your support for equal marriage. We appreciate your evolution on marriage equality which is not unlike the experience of the majority of Americans who have come to understand why marriage is so important to loving same-sex couples and their children. Listening, learning, growing, and changing is the American way, but it takes courage and leadership. We applaud you for showing that courage and leadership to the nation.

In Massachusetts, where equal marriage became law almost 8 years ago, we have learned that our communities are safer, happier and healthier when all families are respected, supported and celebrated. We look forward to the day when all Americans can enjoy the freedom to marry.

Thank you.
