Tim Kaine’s post-inauguration act of universal love

Today is a day that really hurts. After so many dark signs in the cabinet appointments, press conferences, and executive orders (the EPA media blackout, Keystore XL and Dakota, I’m looking at you…for starters), I’m scared the news to come on immigration from Mexico and Muslim countries is going to take things to a level I could never have imagined for this country.

So. Since we are about hope here, a quiet and soul-affirming story from Towleroad.

On the evening after Trump took the highest office in our land, Senator Tim Kaine officiated the wedding of lesbian couple Dea Jones and Sharon McLeod.

Like Lin Manuel Miranda said, love is love is love. And love is what will strengthen and save us.
