It's a rainbow day today...


Today in New Zealand the first gay and lesbian couples were able to get legally married.
What a special day! It's so awesome that people who love each other can 
commit to loving each other till death us do part!


It makes me sad that so many people felt the need to say hurtful
and judgmental things about loving relationships,
what ever you believe, there is really no justification for so many hard words.


I guess in a few years it will not seem like such a big deal,
it will be hard to remember it ever being so,
but it is a big deal, it's making a whole sector of our community feel included.



It's a rainbow day today, a day when no matter what colour or flavour you are,
you can be included here in New Zealand.


I hope that it makes for stronger, more committed families.
A strong family helps to build a strong community,
and that's what we all need.
