When it came time for the couple’s traditional first dance, Joe read prepared remarks explaining that instead of dancing together, they wanted to open the dance floor to their gay and lesbian friends who are still legally denied the right to marry.
This was a large and very diverse wedding in a state that doesn’t even recognize same-sex civil unions, let alone marriage. And yet the ovation that these people received while dancing to The Beach Boys’ “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” was like nothing I’ve ever heard at any wedding. If there were dry eyes, I didn’t see any.
Change is coming.
Dear John Green,
While writing my actually!serious paper about the causes of the French Revolution, somewhere around page 10 (and I’m gonna say 1am or so), my delusion caught up with me and I couldn’t help but include what is probably my favorite remark in your French Revolution video: that France, remarkably, has more than one room.
It occurs to me now (after turning it in) that I probably should’ve quoted you directly, and made you a source on my paper, but alas, I did not. Please don’t sue me? The French Revolution video is one of my favorite things ever, so please have mercy.
