End Of A Hateful Era
Tuesday, September 20th, 12:01am EDT - With no 21 gun salute or national fanfare for justice finally served (just the destruction of lives & careers), DADT quietly passed into the history books leaving behind a shameful reminder of how equal & free many of us truly are.
Army Chief of Staff General Ray Odierno on this historical moment: "Today marks the end of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. The law is repealed. From this day forward, gay & lesbian soldiers may serve in our Army with the dignity & respect they deserve."
May this day be one we remember as a huge victory but also, may it be a constant reminder of the struggles we have faced & continue to face in our fight for equality.
Congratulations & thank you to ALL who serve!
Standing up (OK, sitting down) for our rights!
