We persist and insist on seeing difference, color, gender, race, as the previous comments highlight, but this is precisely the transcending power of this land, the inclusion that it fosters despite its antiquated, inhuman laws and still narrow-minded perception of minorities and the absolutely mind-boggling fact of humanity's infinite capacity to defy norms, to re-establish normalcy and to reconfigure its very essence...
