Last year, Richard Blanco made history as the youngest, first openly gay, first immigrant and first Latino person to read a poem at a presidential inauguration. Now, in honor of the 10th anniversary of marriage equality in Massachusetts, he’s written a poem about how far the marriage movement has come. Commissioned by Freedom to Marry, “Until We Could” is an evocative, emotional tribute to the loves that came before us and those that will come after. I don’t even have to tell you I’m crying. I know you know. (via the Daily Beast)
