    The Governor signed the bill on the capitol steps and over 6,000 people were there. Three bridges were either lit up or festooned with flags. Celebration was in the air.

    I was a volunteer for Minnesotans United for All Families. FYI, I am straight, white, 66 and a grandmother.

    I've heard from one supporter of marriage equality that he thought all the celebration was rubbing it in to the losers and maybe we should have gone off quietly and let them heal. I disagree. I don't think that the hard core opponents who don't think that florists, caterers and photographers should have to serve the LGBT marriages if it violates their conscience are going to 'heal.' I think the celebrations recognize that this was historic and well worth celebrating. Maybe it will help some of those folks who did care much one way or the other find a sense of pride in living in a progressive state.
