Dear future children, 

I refuse to apologize for how much I'll overwhelm you with stories about this past week and its historical significance in the ongoing battle for human rights in our nation… but if it’s challenging for you to assimilate history into the personal frameworks of your minds, do not dismay, because these unremitting sermons will be coupled with the amusing image of your mother at 23, wine in hand, resting on a balcony in plain summer sunlight, thinking about you for the first time in a long time - playing guessing games on the sizes of your eyes, the ideas endemic to your heads, the questions burning in your chests - and feeling a glimmer of hope at the thought that you might just be born into a country that’s on its way to loving you as much and as completely as she will. 

Love, love, love (which sometimes wins),
