Loving Day

Loving Day. Most people are clueless as to what the heck that is. Despite the name, no it is not Valentine's Day's twin sister, or Sweetest Day's evil cousin. Loving Day falls on June 12 every year, and it marks the anniversary of when the Supreme Court overturned a law that banned racially mixed couples from legal marriage. It took place in 1967, and the case was Loving vs Virginia. Needless to say, Loving beat the state and marriage in the United States was forever changed. If you want more info, there's always google. ;)

My point...A good friend of mine just informed me that our local newspaper, the Gainesville Sun, is looking for mixed race couples to share their stories to commemorate the 43rd anniversary of Loving Day. So, without hesitation, I'm jumping aboard! I am half of a mixed race marriage, and my wonderful husband is the other (and better) half. My story sharing is in the works, and our love tale will be posted when it is complete. Look for that.

I've linked the Gainesville Sun article to the title of this post, so if you're in a mixed marriage in the Gainesville area...you should share your story too. I dare you. ;-)

the end.
