DAY 9: DADT Update

Here it is Tuesday morning and in addition to watching for news concerning DADT, the world is watching to see what the California Supreme Court is going to say about Proposition 8. Will it be upheld? In a few hours we will know.

Regardless of what happens, we must stay strong and we must keep our diginity. Let the other folks act like jerks. Lately I have pointed a lot to Lt. Dan Choi, but once again it is appropriate. Remember the dignity with which he has carried himself? Let us all continue to follow his example. Hopefully we will all soon be equal, both on the battlefield and in the wedding chapel.

I recall seeing footing of the dignity of the Selma marchers in the face of the hateful behavior of the police.

Gandhi was right: non-violent civil disobedience is the way to go to achieve Civil Rights.

May we follow their examples, as LGTBQ folks struggle for their freedom in this 21st century.
