Why Do I love Obama Today?

It's about equality AND how much I'm going to miss him.

Of the races—black, white, red, brown, yellow, fuschia, polka dot and lavender.

"What a life Clementa Pinckney lived," Obama said to rounds of applause and "amens." ''What an example he set. What a model for his faith. And then to lose him at 41. Slain in his sanctuary with eight wonderful members of his flock."

"Removing the flag from this state's capital would not be an act of political correctness," he said. "It would not an insult to the valor of Confederate soldiers. It would simply be acknowledgment that the cause for which they fought, the cause of slavery, was wrong."

It's about equality for all.
Straight, Gay, Lesbian, Bi.

President Obama called the Supreme Court's decision affirming the constitutional right of same-sex couples to marry a "victory for America" that had "made our union a little more perfect."

"Our nation was founded on a bedrock principle that we are all created equal. The project of each generation is to bridge the meaning of those founding words with the realities of changing times — a never-ending quest to ensure those words ring true for every single American."

It's about equality and justice for all.

Everyone, NOT just the rich and the lucky, deserve decent health care.

"As the dust has settled, there can be no doubt that this law is working,"Obama declared at the White House, hours after justices read their opinions. "The Affordable Care Act is here to stay."

"Today's decision is a victory for every hardworking American. Access to quality, affordable health care is a right, not a privilege."

That was a good week.
