This Older Woman's Reaction To A Same-Sex Proposal Will Make You Smile

The smallest solace for a terrible day.

On a bad day (the electoral college voted Donald Trump in), in heavy, disappointing month, in a terrifying, dark year, we have something small, something teensy-tiny that we can smile about for a moment. In a tweet posted December 17, a happy brother captured a picture of his sister proposing to her girlfriend at the Art Institute of Chicago. What he probably didn't intend to capture, was a woman in the background, overcome with happiness.

 

The couple, Chelsea and Jessica, didn't notice the happy woman in the background until they were reviewing their photos, which was probably a wonderful surprise for them.

A lot of the focus has gone to this woman in the background. The Internet is losing it over her. And why not? It's nice to take a minute or two out of the day to acknowledge that there are decent people in the world who don't judge people for who they love. Within 48 hours, the Internet helped track down the woman, who has since sent her best wishes to Chelsea and Jessica. 

 

This reaction might not mean a lot to everyone but, to some people, it might be the difference between staying in the closet and feeling safe enough to come out. Here's to hoping we can get more love and celebration in the world, and less hate from the President-Elect, his cabinet, and a lot of haters.
