“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal…” Civil Rights are the hallmark of our Nation and the basis of why anyone came to America in the first place. To think that we still live in a country that requires continued clarification of this should strike fear in the hearts of all Americans. Much the way the Civil Rights Act of 1964 sought to end discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex or national origin, the recent Supreme Court decision of Obergefell vs. Hodges is a reminder of our Unalienable Right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Unfortunately, the harsh truth is that this ruling does not end the plight of the LGBT community. The reality of being fired or being denied housing because of whom you marry is still very real. Congress should continuously take note of our own history and ensure that no class of citizen is subjected to any form of discrimination.
