Two years ago today, in an interview with ABC's Robin Roberts, President Obama spoke words that millions of LGBT Americans wanted to hear: "...it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married." It was a watershed moment in the fight for marriage equality: the first time in American history that a sitting president had ever spoken out for same-sex couples' freedom to marry.
I will never forget that day or the way President Obama's words touched my heart. Actually hearing my president recognizing and affirming my family -- as a family -- was an incredibly powerful experience. The first thing I did after the President spoke was call my husband at work to share the news, but I choked up before I could even get the words out. We cried over the phone together, grateful to be alive to see such an historic day.
