It was pretty exciting to watch the reaction of college football player Michael Sam, when it was announced that he had been drafted by the St. Louis Rams NFL team. In case you hadn’t heard, ESPN was there (in San Diego, of all places), when he heard the news and kissed his boyfriend, Vito Cammisano. The kiss was broadcast on national television and, thanks to the Internet, to an international audience.
That’s what we do as human beings. We celebrate and show affection to our dear ones when we receive wonderful news.
