How easy to forget ("Higher speed limit law moves forward," March 21). Do some of you old timers remember the fuss we made when the speed limit on Interstate 95 was changed to 65 miles per hour? Now, 70 miles per hour is almost normal.

So it will be with the same-sex marriage conundrum, immigration and women's rights. It is even possible that abortion will be considered normal sometime later.

We cannot stop the healing power of time. It will happen as naturally as the new speed limits became residential. And we will forget the agitation just as quickly.
