Beresford student: liberty and justice for all except in South Dakota

South Dakota isn’t the only place seeing the movement towards marriage equality. Thirty-seven out of the fifty states now grant same-sex couples the right to marry, and 72 percent of the U.S. population lives in a state with marriage equality. FreedomToMarry.org states, “In 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in several marriage legal cases. A favorable outcome could bring the freedom to marry to same-sex couples nationwide.” The Marriage Equality Movement is gaining momentum, and hopefully this year will be the year that all couples will have the right to marry whom they wish. When that day comes, I’ll be able to recite the Pledge of Allegiance and feel it to be true. [Elizabeth Petersen, Beresford High School]
