This is Hillary Clinton's touching tribute to Edie Windsor. HC: By now, much of America is familiar with Edie and Thea’s love story. For over 40 years, they were inseparable. Before Stonewall, before Pride parades, before two women could marry anywhere in the world, their devotion to one another was its own quiet revolutionary act. They loved each other through good times and hard times, including the hardest time of all - Thea’s diagnosis of progressive multiple sclerosis. After being told that Thea had no more than a year to live, they flew to Canada and were legally married. When Thea died two years later Edie, of course, was overcome with grief. And then that grief was compounded by the injustice that she owed hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes she wouldn’t have had to pay if she had been married to a man. She chose to fight all the way to the highest court in the land. The day Edie won, much of America cheered with her. Now in this moment when so much hard fought progress is hanging in the balance, it is up to all of us to pick up where she left off. It’s easy to grow weary fighting these fights. But remember Edie Windsor, who took on and won against the U.S. government. She backed Jim Obergefell, who later brought his own case to the Supreme Court, which made marriage equality the law of the land. So thank you, Edie for proving that love is more powerful than hate.
