Rebecca Carroll and her husband, writer Chris Bonastia

plan to fall in love. And neither did Richard and Mildred Loving, whose valiant fight for the right to be married helped to change my fate, and assure my happiness. My husband and I have been married for seven years, and our son will turn seven next month. They are my family, and I am Black. That is enough. Thank you, Richard and Mildred Loving. Happy Loving Day.
