Listen, write it down, and listen again: Australia will legalize marriages.
Incredible, right?
What a day, guys.

For extended, they missed something extraordinary, unique, spectacular.

Last but not least, enough with tender moment in portraits and video streaming, or in the cold deferred, sent to relatives and friends.
At least those who had not expressed the slightest blame.
