… and that’s what matters.

Interesting exchange on my Facebook wall over the past few days.

me: (commenting on President Obama’s stance on same-sex marriage)
“It often requires more courage to dare to do right than to fear to do wrong.” – A. Lincoln
Bravo, Mr. President.

a friend:
Yeah. But please admit that before he was only for “civil unions”

me:
Yes, that’s true. And maybe that’s why the Lincoln quote is so appropriate. Take a look at history: Lincoln’s final position on slavery was not the same as the position with which he started. Politics are complicated; moral leadership even more so. But most people don’t care how Lincoln, a Republican btw, evolved to his final position. He ended in the right place – and that’s what matters. Hope you’re well.

PS – Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers of the world, especially mine!  You rock, Mom – love you!
