This week has been one of the most miraculous weeks we’ve seen in recent history. We’ve seen a 25 year-old country girl bend the will of a bunch of rich ass middle-aged white men in Silicon Valley. 150 after their defeat, in the Civil War, Confederacy loyalist are lowering the stars and bars. And you can finally marry anyone you want in any state you want in America, regardless if a bunch of religious people aren’t cool with it.
Celebrations have been ringing out across the country in light of the Supreme Court’s decision that same-sex marriage is right. Silicon Valley execs tweeted their approval of the decision this morning, including Apple CEO Tim Cook, who had the Pride Flag raised at Apple HQ in celebration.

Tim Cook tweeted this morning that “today marks a victory for equality, perseverance and love.” Other top tech execs like Square CEO Jack Doresy, Sundar Pichai at Google, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, and T-Mobile’s John Legere tweeted praise for the ruling as well.
The Supreme Court’s ruling comes just in time for the Pride Festival weekend in San Francisco. Last year, Tim Cook joined Lisa Jackson and other Apple employees in the march through San Francisco. A video celebrating the occasion was also released shortly after.
