A STEP FORWARD FOR EQUALITY 

 

Wherever freedom takes a step forward, we need to honor the moment and the step, and wherever equality takes a step forward, we need, similarly, to honor and express gratitude for another barrier that has been crossed... 

 

------------------------------

 

In America, today, an historic event related to the equality of all citizens under the law and within the social fabric of society has taken place, almost eclipsed by the mental and emotional turmoil occurring with respect to this year's presidential election.  We, as a collective awareness, have gotten so immersed in issues related to the personality of those seeking public office that the matter of the first woman nominated to represent her party for the highest office in the land has taken a back seat to the current focus and debate.

 

In some ways this is good, since there has been an education in recent decades concerning the role that women play in both public and private sectors of life. And we have, as a nation, come to rely more on the qualities of character and levels of experience that a candidate for public office brings to that candidacy, rather than on their gender.  Such education has evolved over time, and so for many, it is only natural that a woman should be seeking the office of the President for the first time in our two-hundred-and-forty year history. For many, it is only natural and it has taken far too long.

 

Nevertheless, just as movement toward increasing equality accorded to African-Americans over the past century needs to be recognized and honored, step-by-step, as significant events within our collective history, and just as sexual equality in recent times has accorded expanded rights to lesbian, bi-sexual, and trans-gender persons, so, too, must we honor the current transition into a higher degree of equality, now manifested in the nomination of the first woman to run for President in the year of 2016.

 

Wherever freedom takes a step forward, we need to honor the moment and the step, and wherever equality takes a step forward, we need, similarly, to honor and express gratitude for another barrier that has been crossed in our expansion into greater equality for all.  Such a barrier has been crossed, today, and while it is not everything, it is an important step within our history and one that has been long awaited.

 

May all that we do as a nation continue to recognize and uphold the founding principles of liberty, equality, and justice for all that are everpresent in our national consciousness. And may we in this presidential election year,  seek within ourselves to find the best possible choices that will uphold these principles.  We do this for ourselves as a nation, but we also do it for the world that seeks to embody these same principles more fully.  May we remain steadfast in our trust that equality for all can one day be made real within all nations, and that within America, that all barriers to such universal equality can, with the assistance of each heart that seeks it, be finally removed.
