Once upon a time in America, black people were slaves, women were not allowed to vote, racial prejudice was legal, same-sex couples were not allowed to marry, and guns could be put in the hands of anyone who wanted one.

In 1865, slavery was abolished.
In 1920, women became allowed to vote.
In 2015 same-sex couples were allowed to be legally married.

But if I can’t complete it for you, promise me that you will never stop trying to write a happy ending to this story.
