Chris Kluwe: Years From Now, We Can Tell Our Kids About Marriage-Equality Wins

Together, we showed this nation that a polity functions best when it includes all of its citizens, when it celebrates their differences as part of one glorious whole, when it synthesizes a wide assortment of cultures and beliefs under the guiding principles of freedom and happiness for everyone

There is work yet to be done, but we passed an important milestone today. Ten, 15, 20 years from now, when our children ask us, “What did you do when it came time to fight for someone else?,” we can tell them about Minnesota and Maryland and Maine, states where people finally said: Enough.

Enough with the hate. Enough with the bigotry. Enough with the discrimination. We are all Americans, and we are all in this together. Without each other, we have nothing.

—Minnesota Viking and marriage-equality warrior Chris Kluwe, in an opinion piece for Slate.
