In one of the most important Supreme Court cases of the past decade, the members of the highest court in the land struck down the Defense of Marriage Act as well as rejecting an appeal on California's Prop 8 in a 5-4 decision. This will return the right for everyone in the Golden State to marry whoever they want!
While this news is Supreme-ly AH-mazing and a HUGE victory, let's not forget that there are pockets of the LGBT community in America who cannot fully participate in today's victory, and that progress in many states towards marriage equality is still at a standstill.
Chad Griffin, President of the Human Rights Campaign, puts some perspective on this landmark ruling:

For the first time since 2001, Tiger Woods has won the Player's Championship at Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida!
Just the other day we were talking about how much this championship meant to Tiger — it wasn't just another round of golf. It was his 78th victory, and his 300th start during his PGA tour career! Which is pretty cool, because Tiger also won his 100th start and 200th start, keeping the trend alive!
Even more interesting is the fact that the whole match wasn't just some blowout! It came down to the final two holes for Tiger to squeak out the victory, in VERY dramatic fashion!
How exciting! We hope he celebrated properly! Ha!

Victory, a 1-year-old Chihuahua, was born with deformed front legs.
Since her front legs are only half the size of a normal dogs', she has to kind of hop around, and that's where her nickname came from: Kangaroo!
With a protective vest, a set of wheels and a sort of sled device, she'll be able to move around much easier!

Wow, way to stay classy, Serena Williams.
We've had SO much respect for Serena and her talent over the years, but this is just uncalled for. She took getting destroyed by 19 year old Sloane Stephens in the Australian Open Quarterfinals like a child
