Thank you to the 65 Senators who today decided to allow the United States to join the 25 other countries which allow openly gay and lesbian persons to serve their country in the military. They join the 250 Representatives who voted earlier this week.
It is so nice to be able to say that yes, after all this work by countless thousands of individuals, America is finally being dragged kicking and screaming into the 20th century.
Now, it's time to drag this country into the 21st century by allowing those same brave and patriotic soldiers to marry the person of their choice.
