Like Looking through the Eye of God

L

Nancy “Sunny” Bostrom, a volunteer deputy marriage commissioner in Alameda County, CA, has a beautiful take on performing weddings at the county courthouse:
“It’s like looking through the eye of God. I get to be three feet away at a moment none of their descendants will see, that no parents get to see in the same way. You place yourself in the crossroads where people are making these huge commitments. This kind of love is where poetry and religion and science all converge.”
Thanks to the San Jose Mercury News for the quote.
