INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - It was a celebration on the steps of the Indiana State Capitol Building Wednesday, after the Supreme Court ruled that same sex married couples have a right to the same federal benefits that heterosexual couples have.
"I feel like you should just love who you love and be yourself," said Kennedy Austin.
"I came to celebrate," said Jan.
Jan says she's celebrating for LGBT people and same sex couples everywhere -- couples like Tom Beck and Foster Flint who have been together for 19 years.
"It's been a slow, steady, crawl," Beck said.
And Tom has been there every step of that crawl. He still has a sign from when he went to the March on Washington for gay rights in 1993.
"Back at that time the thought of marriage wasn't even thought of."
But today it's more than a thought, whether that has any impact on Indiana's laws has yet to be seen.
"Nobody wants to be uncomfortable, we all have to live here with each other, so why not love each other. I hope our state legislators are listening."
A Lafayette man charged with multiple bank robberies in Tippecanoe and Clinton Counties pleads guilty to a series of bank robberies in Illinois.
The drop in temperatures brings the potential for health dangers, such as hypothermia and frost bite. The bitter temperatures can pose a threat for children, adults and pets.
As it stands Wednesday, there will be no FEMA aid for tornado survivors in Howard County.
