O Lord Lead me from the unreal to the real.
Lead me from the darkness to light.
Lead me from death to immortality.
May there be peace, peace, and perfect peace.

My husband called me at work to tell me the great news. Iowa!

Alabama.


They were the last to take a ban of interracial marriage off their books - in the year 2000!


Though, by electoral map, I'd go with my own Tennessee.
