“Until we are all free, we are none of us free. ”

What a wonderful week to be in the Republic of Ireland! There have been many toasts, tears, and positive vibes pulsing through the city after the recent majority victory for the Yes side. It was really cool to see so many people with Yes posters by the canal leading up to the vote, and very heartening to hear them engaging with people as they walked or cycled by. The No posters were difficult to see and very hurtful; but more interesting I think were the responses that challenged the No dialogue and the discussion and passionate responses that the posters generated. Not only do laws need to change, but attitudes do as well, so let the conversations continue!
