A Day of Equality, A Day of Pride

Victory Day

Today is a man-on-the-moon day—the sort of spectacular day my withered self will reflect back on with national pride and sweet nostalgia. This day of victory and progressive celebration brings to mind  my mother’s exaltation over the moon landing in 1969. She still tears up to speak of it.

As science celebrated its milestone then, let us celebrate this landmark of civil rights with equal joy and respect. Here’s to present and future tears!
